When I saw these stunning pictures, I recalled snippets of conversation in which, through the years, I have considered the possibility of there being life on other planets. Some notable people have theorized the existence of many other “worlds,” ours being the only one to which Satan gained access; the only fallen world, if you will.
And then David’s moving words in Psalm 8:4 rang in my ears: “What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?”

Although the Earth Observatory typically reserves “Image of the Day” space for publishing data and images acquired by Earth-observing satellites, we are sometimes so enthralled by the spectacular images acquired by spacecraft observing other parts of the solar system that we want to share these ‘otherworldy’ views with our visitors. And if you are looking for remotely sensed images of the Earth, this view is the most remotely sensed image we have ever published!
