Whether you believe that this beautiful orb was formed in a Big Bang,
or molded by a Creator's hands, or fashioned by some
cosmic combination of means, I'm pretty sure
you can't look at this image and not be awestruck.

I am enthralled by this latest image of our complex and stunning
planet, and I just wanted to share it with you.
Have a wonderful week! -- Cass
