Whatzit No. 8

Well, not really.
But until the American spacecraft Cassini photographed this stunning solar eclipse by Saturn, no human ever had seen it.
Except by, YouKnowWho, the Almighty Who, Who created Saturn in the first place.

What may be a sobering, realigning notion, is the second photo here, during Saturn's eclipse.
To protect the Cassini lenses, its cameras are never aimed toward the Sun, except that during big ole' Saturn's eclipse,
the Earth and our moon became visible thanks to shadow:

Putting our world's very, very small problems here into true perspective.
Yet, that same Almighty Who, loves you and me, despite knowing each of us and our sins.
Does this make you feel microscopically small, or mighty important?

Isn't it amazing we can admire the gifts that he has begotten us.

Equally as amazing that we are the only country in the world that has the talent to send technology into the heavens so that we can view his creations.

So much to ponder upon.

What is man that You are mindful of him? How much more awe inspiring are those words when pondered in the context of our minuscule place in the vastness of space.
