JUPITER

 

“…within the clouds appear numerous illusions,
a woman’s face with flowing hair and a windblown robe,
a bird’s head, fantastic creatures and so much mystery…”

This photo of clouds within a mysterious jet stream region on Jupiter was taken in February 2019 by NASA’s Juno Space Probe. Photo courtesy and © of NASA, JPL-Caltech, SwRI, MSSS and Kevin M. Gill. (I seldom use other people’s photos, but I couldn’t resist ‘borrowing’ this one.)

THE MILK OF HUMAN KINDNESS

 

“Billions of years from now our sun,
then a distended red giant star,
will have reduced Earth to a charred cinder.
But the Voyager record will still be largely intact,
in some other remote region of the Milky Way galaxy,
preserving a murmur of an ancient civilization that once flourished.”

 

~ Carl Sagan ~
