A Humble Earth    ...interesting.

We are just a dot in the sky.  

I certainly thought this was enlightening. Didn't even realize we knew much beyond our sun ...

It's a big universe.

Antares is the 15th brightest star in the sky.

It is more than 1,000 light years away.

The universe is so vast it is not comprehensible by the human mind. It would be like an ant trying to understand the wonder of the internet. It can't be done.

The universe humbles us as it should.
