    I think I'm going to be addicted to these as well!

    Maybe I could design something that looks like the Millenium Falcon. :D
    (Am a gal with simple tastes.) :p

    So says the guy up there : ...here comes the Sun. And a tear to my eye.

    He says that even after such a long time up there in the ISS watching so many sunrises and sunsets, he still has tears in his eyes when he sees a new sunrise....

    Does Jesus feel the same when he sees it too, even two thousands years after his stay on earth ? Only someone who has lived as a human on earth and who knows that which the Sun means to us all can understand what it means to see it rise again.... Everything that we take for granted down here must seem so fragile from up there....

    Says he : I will never forget the golden reflection of the rising sun on the hull of our ship.

    Do you remember the picture I posted on the thread "Quotes", the one with the painter who drops all of his tools at his feet on the ground in front of the breathtakingly beautiful starry vault above him. I know what the guy up there feels when he says that he has tears in his eyes when he sees a sunrise because I feel the same, why ! even while seeing a picture of it. It's so awe-inspiring that I happen to have the feeling that I'm a kid in front of them.

    I'm glad that you like those pictures. I'll tell you where you can find some more of 'em ! ;)

    About 6 months ago, I was out in service with a friend and he was in a return visit to someone who's become a friend over the years. He takes the magazines and reads them but we talk about every kind of topic possible when we are with him, from the Bible to economics or the latest movies. That day, his wife was there and we started talking about astronomy. When she learned that it was one of my passions, she was bouncing off the walls, she started showing me the apps on her ipad but couldn't much because the battery was dying. I showed her mine on my smartphone. She was very happy and I was happy too because it is soooo rare to meet someone who really likes astronomy, rockets and space stations too....

    That one may ring some bells on your side of the pond !!

    Says he : The two halves of the Great Salt Lake in Utah. Which one is the natural color?

    snicker snicker ..there's hardly anything in the cosmos that
    has been given us that I don't like (cept maybe spiders and
    mosquitoes and maybe ants when they're invading) or
    else you know I would not be able to cover the subjects
    in poetry that I have found to be fascinating ..I look forward
    to when Uncle David comes and stays as we can talk
    into the dead of night about astronomy to archaeology to
    zoology ..and everything in between ...

    interesting , I haven't been there tho my kidlets have an
    auntie who migrates between Provo and Fish Creek when
    she's not teaching ...I would suspect the water to look like
    water ...because the color of Crater Lake is stunning and
    my pictures of it are the true color..but I've not seen lakes
    in such a desert area as much of Utah is . Uncle David
    hikes there regularly ...

    nice , I haven't visited the Hubble site in awhile ..I spend entirely
    too much on this piece of equipment ....buuttttt , it's hard not
    to want to see all that we will never get to see in the few miles
    we spend "our time" in ...while I wrote the piece "Inspiration"
    because there are times the accomplishments of men just astound
    me to no end ..the works of creation are far more compelling to
    study and the shear joy of it's vastness and complexity with a
    "never ending" possibility to enjoy , learn about and "see" ..
