There are several photos showing the night side of Earth, with the lights of cities, including combinations by NASA, removing the clouds. Yet, this artwork goes beyond. It shows the 'pale blue dot' against the vast emptiness of space, dotted with stars -- that are outshone by the city lights.

To me, this an optimistic picture. Against the entire Milky Way, the peerless sapphire glows with light, energy, effort. It stands against the empty unfeeling darkness. It stands against the burn of the Sun itself (the aurora, trapping the solar wind and rendering the Earth safe for life). You cannot see the daily evils. You can only see the wonder that humanity can create.

The Sun and the Moon are there, given respect and recognition, but the 'star of the show' is our favourite planet. If we stopped loving it ever, this picture would make us fall in love with it all over again.

This encapsulates humanity and the lure of space exploration in one terrific picture.

Technique, as usual, fantastic, but in this picture, despite being outstanding, technique is still the least of the things to like.

Amazing atribute to our lovely planet that little by little is being destroyed. Its an amazing digital art of it. The lights and shadows are really well distributed.

Youre an amazing grafic designer this will go right to my desktop. Its amazing the detail of the aurora borealis. Youre really outstanding the caracteristics of our lovely planet. The detail of the lights of the cities its great. Its amazing how much effort you put in your work and its totally worth it. And of course the moon couldnt miss in the picture. I adore to see your space at its so realistic.

This is an amazing workart keep it up.
