The “Pale Blue Dot”

This is a picture of Earth taken from the Voyager spacecraft just before it left our solar system. Voyager took 65 pictures to make this panoramic shot. It was many millions of miles away from Earth.

The picture has been called “The Pale Blue Dot”.

Can you see “us”? What is your reaction?
