Here's the revised version of "I think my eyes just popped out" I really didn't like the vertical borders so I used the clone stamp tool to extend the starfield. I also put the globe and moon a bit off center to give you more room for your icons. Hopefully you all will like this :) Image created by Reto Stöckli, Nazmi El Saleous, and Marit Jentoft-Nilsen, NASA GSFC.

For all of you who are curious- the title of this image actually came from the file name NASA used, which I saw when I was downloading it.
Here's their description of how it was made: "This true-color image shows North and South America as they would appear from space 35,000 km (22,000 miles) above the Earth. The image is a combination of data from two satellites. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) instrument aboard NASA’s Terra satellite collected the land surface data over 16 days, while NOAA’s Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES) produced a snapshot of the Earth’s clouds."

How often do we go out of mind to try, the best we can, to comprehend the empty sea beyond the borders of our atmosphere?

It's generally paralyzing, if you try hard enough. Our tiny brains just can't grasp it all. So a gentle, and beautiful reminder of our humble living quarters is always appreciated when it keeps us in proper awe.

"Imperfection is beauty; madness is genius & it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring. And when it comes down to it, I let them think what they want. If they care enough to bother with what I do, then I'm really better than them."--Marilyn Monroe
