The More You Don't Know

I have been waiting for this since I was a small child.  Just look at it.  It's everything that we tought that it wasn't. Just wandering out there amongst the planets our little dwarf planet.

I remember when my father would take me out back and point up and say it was out there somewhere, a cold blue world.  Yet here it is in all of it's glory.  It almost looks warm and inviting..almost.  And you can feel the love from the heart right there on the surface.

Forgive me if I get a little sentimental.  It is after all my favorite of the planets (and to me it will ALWAYS be a planet regardless of what you say Mr. Tyson!).

I look forward to so much more as the pictures come back as I go thru my day to day life, which I think I will begin documenting right here as we wait for more exciting discoveries from our little probe.

What a wonderful time to be alive.
