Cassini, 898 million miles away, was making a picture of saturn and earth so they asked people to Wave at Saturn.

There have been only two images of Earth from the outer solar system, the first and most distant one was taken 23 years ago by NASA's Voyager 1 spacecraft from 4 billion miles, showing Earth as a pale blue dot. Simulation from the NASA site.

_cfimg3161307409360932481.PNGThe "Pale Blue Dot" picture is from the book:
Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space, Carl Sagan, Random House (November 14, 1995)
ISBN-10: 0679764860

And the most awesome certificate.

PIA17171-3.jpgPIA14949-1.jpgHere are the images Cassini sent back. Saturn with the rings and Earth as the bright blue dot. And Earth with the Moon. You can find more on the JPL site.

And here are just some scenes.
Every day is market day in Roanoke. And what's with all these homegrown peaches but no peanuts? If you ever make it to Roanoke check out the On The Rise Bakery for the yummiest sandwiches.
