Hey, What Is That Pale Blue Dot?


Ever had your picture take from one billion miles away?

Actually, you have. NASA’s Cassini orbiter recently photographed our moon and planet from about one-billion miles away.

Earth, obviously, is the bright flash in the middle. The moon is just down and to the left. Take a look at a few more of the incredible photos.
