    • Hi Gracie, thank you very much for your response. I’m simply sharing some of the superb photography on the NASA website. My view is that they help (at least they do for for me) to put our lives into an infinitely broader (and infinitely amazing) context. Best regards, Phil

    • Hi Judy, and thank you very much for your comment. The world is an amazing place and I think the photography on the NASA site brings this out. I am looking at every photo in their ‘Picture of the Day’ archive – and there are a LOT of them! All the best, Phil
