Pale Blue Dot

For the past year I’ve been trying to create a space scene using watercolours, this one turned out pretty well. It also just happens to coincide with the 25th anniversary of the Pale Blue Dot photograph.

carl sagan quote thats home thats here thats us

“On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every “superstar,” every “supreme leader,” every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there – on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.”

Thanks for reading.

  1. I agree with Dan. It may make us feel very small, but I always find it helps my all of my problems feel even smaller, so I don’t fret over them as much.
