NASA has a new sattelite and it has generated the high resolution image of the earth ever produced. It is simply breathtaking. I’ll post it here, but I encourage you to download the original 8,000 x 8,000 pixel version here. The image is free and in the public domain, subject to this Creative Commons license.

    This great photo reminded me of the first time we on earth saw earth when 3 astronauts on December 24th, 1968 orbited the moon. This clip does not include the liturgical prayer for peace they prayed, the astronauts knowing full well that ’68 was not a good year in American history. My Dad and I were watching this together. It still gives me goose bumps as it did then for my Dad and I:

    Seeing how beautiful this *fallen* world is, just think how glorious the “new heavens and new earth” (Is. 65:17; 66:22; 2 Pet. 3:13) will appear!

    It made me think of 1968 as well but I was only 6 and a half. I remember they passed out photos in my 1st grade class, and I remember watching on the television.

    As a side-note, the NASA scientist who composed this picture is an LCMS Lutheran whose ancestors got off the boat from Saxony in Perry County, Missouri.

    It’s sobering to see Florida so visible and to realize how much distance we cover when traveling either on land or at sea. On a very recent cruise to the Eastern Carribean, I thought that I could see a slight curve in the sea’s horizon while on mountain tops on some of the islands.

    Job 26:7
    He stretches out the north over the void and hangs the earth on nothing.
