    [@AFPhy6] Glad you are enjoying the offbeat stuff we share!

    Maybe someone should write a program that automatically changes wallpaper based on what dotTech shares. =O

    [@sragan5] Welcome!

    After watching NOVA, where it was explained how, on the same day, Earth was just missed by an asteroid we knew about and hit by one that came out of the blue, I hope that we’re all around to see the continuing absolute wonder and beauty that being a living breathing Earth inhabitant can bring. Thanks for this lovely pic.
