Earth From Apollo 17

The iconic image from the last astronauts to return from the moon.

Reminds me of this song from Missa Gaia.

And the great medieval saint, Hildegard of Bingen:

Glance at the sun.
See the moon and the stars.
Gaze at the beauty of earth’s greenings.
Now, think.
What delight God gives to us with all these things.

Earth, may be. But we are part of a larger system.
