The natural world. Looking pretty for 3.5b years.

Voyager Valentine

Author: Guest Writer/Thursday, February 14, 2013/Categories: Uncategorized

Sometimes the best valentines come from afar.

On Valentine's Day 1990 and four billion miles away, the Voyager 1 spacecraft looked back to create a mosaic portrait of solar system. The robotic traveler's camera captured images sweeping through the inner Solar System on the left, linking up with gas giant Neptune, on the right. Mercury and Mars are obscured by sunlight.

The Voyager Valentine didn't come with any flowers or chocolates but it's pretty cool none the less.
