A photo of our Earth taken by NASA on December 17 from the asteroid Bennu.
It is not often that we see a photo of our world from so far away.
No, it is not the bright image in the upper right.
That’s the asteroid, only 27 miles from the camera and blindingly reflecting the light.
Our entire world is that small dot in the lower left and the smaller dot right next to it.
Our planet and our moon.
Nothing like a photo to put us in our proper place.
