Okay, this is my new desktop pic now….

This blew me away.  I’ve seen lots of pictures of the Moon rising over the limb of the Earth from the ISS.  They’re all beautiful.  This one, however, totally blows them all away.  It’s a genuine photograph, unaltered, yet it looks like something one of the greats of space art would produce, something just a bit too beautiful to be real — and yet there it is.  Usually it’s Saturn that blows me away like this, but no, this is way closer to home.  This is our Moon, and our atmosphere, and it is beautiful.
