With the recent events in Charlottesville, Virginia and Trump’s predictable lack of condemnation, which is to say, support for, white supremacy, I can’t help but believe that America is now entering a new depth of crisis.

This could get very bad.

Pale Blue Dot


With all of the craziness of the past couple of days (and really, the months since DT took office) it’s good to get some perspective with Carl Sagan.

The original image was taken in 1990 at Sagan’s request. I used the new image taken July 19, 2013 by the Cassini spacecraft in an event called “The Day the Earth Smiled”. Look closely at DOT and you’ll find the Earth at the center.

What a strange world we live in. The beauty of the non-human world constantly amazes me. Humans though, always a mix of beauty and horror.

The world is all upside down these days. It’s a good time for deep breaths and time under the stars. Last night I spent a good long while looking at Saturn and a few of it’s moons. Then I spent some time looking at the Lagoon Nebula.
