Isaiah 40:15

This image was taken by the Voyager 1 space probe on Feb. 14, 1990, while more than 4,000,000,000 miles from Earth. The left-hand colorful section is rotated and enlarged below.

Do you see the small dot in the pink band of light on the right half of the image? If you do not already know, read further to see what it is.

The same dot appears again in this section of a stunningly beautiful mosaic of the night side of Saturn taken by Cassini on Sept. 15, 2006.

The image below as taken by the rover Spirit on the morning of its 63rd Martian day on Mars.
All of these dots are what is sometimes known as the Pale Blue Dot. You probably know it as our home planet Earth.
