The globe at night

Click on the image below to get a large version of a photograph taken of this planet in the dark.

This is pretty cool. The image burned into my memory, as I’m sure your too, is of the blue planet. But then most scientists are day people, night after dark carousers.

I suppose some intergalactic space hot rodder might crash into us if he came from a direction that didn’t light us up by the sun.

Something to hope for then.
