Thanks Mr. Glover. These unique perspectives should be experienced by everyone. One’s view of our planet from space is an accomplishment in itself. I can only imagine how you could feel looking down at the earth from space. The appreciation for what we have is much overlooked.

I want say “I can image how beautiful it must be”… but I’d be sorely mistaken. I can’t imagine how beautiful that must be. Some things you have to see/experience for yourself. What an incredible privilege to see our pale blue dot from that vantage point 👌💚 Enjoy!
