I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Astronomy Tuesday


I love gravity.

I could never see Earth all at once in its entirety, but I can sit here and quite literally feel the whole of its presence as an invisible force.

Our home planet isn’t just a place.

It’s a physical sensation.

(The CryptoNaturalist is a recent discovery, and I highly recommend the Twitter feed and podcasts.)

This image of a crescent Earth and crescent moon was taken by Voyager 1 in 1977. Not as detailed as the images we've become used to, but a striking juxtaposition.
