    Two thoughts, always the same thoughts for me!

    1. How beautiful our Earth is
    2. How tiny Greece is

    It made me think that China looks underpopulated on that map.

    Ok, so I think I spent to much time staring at the big map in the corner of the class during social studies, because the first thing that popped into my head when the picture started downloading and only the top was visible, was wow that's a great shot of the North west territories and the Hudson bay, of course now I'd have to include Nunavit in that area. But also what an amazing shot of the earth and the beauty that so often we take for granted. Thanks Nancy.

    that's wonderful. I makes me think how amazing it is that it all looks the same from space but we have so many different ways of doing things when you get right down to it. Not just clothing and buildings and speaking, but take any ingredient: eggs!

    To imagine that everyone down there among the lights has their own view of the world and can only see themselves as ordinary.

    Thank you Nancya.

    Nancya, that is an incredible picture. It reminded me of how small I am in the midst of it all. It made me think...my life is a flicker of a flame...it made me wonder why God would even notice me...Thank you. It is very humbling.

    Where the heck is the rest of Australia and New Zealand?
    It's beautiful. Frightening as well.

    It's beautiful, but it made me think about light pollution. I miss seeing tons of stars at night, the aurora borealis, the milky way, meteor showers... Doesn't look like there are too many places in the U.S. to escape.

    Beautifully written, Quenelle. I, too, hope that this is a better year for all of us.

    I wanted to add, that leave it to me to find this out months later - but this website has a cool picture each day!

    ---This picture is so amazingly beautiful... it's humbling but at the same time so very inspiring... so much out there to see and do and experience. thank you for this reminder of how much I and many others take for granted all that is around us that we are too busy to see. --april--
