SO amazing to see the cloud cover all around the Earth. It's mind boggling to think that is space all around this. A truly amazing thing to see. Verena

One look at mother earth from up above will make one realize how insignificant our little problems, quarrels and the earth itself is in the universe. Thanks for sharing this wonderful image.
