Total Lunar Eclipse seen from Mercury: October 8th, 2014
As Space reports, NASA’s Messenger spacecraft (orbiting the planet Mercury) turned towards Earth during its recent lunar eclipse and shot a short video.
"From Mercury, the Earth and moon normally appear as if they were two very bright stars," said planetary scientist Hari Nair, of the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, in Laurel, Md. "During a lunar eclipse, the moon seems to disappear during its passage through the Earth’s shadow, as shown in the movie."
How cool is that?!

I am so happy to see this quote with the word “regalia” replacing “costume.” I never reblogged this quote before b/c our clothes are not costumes…we are not dressing up as something that we are not.
