NASA Releases First Ever Photograph of Saturn, Venus, Earth and Mars

NASA Releases First Ever Photograph of Saturn, Venus, Mars and Earth Venus space NASA moon Mars Earth
You might remember earlier this summer when NASA released a striking image taken by the Cassini spacecraft of Earth as it appears from the dark side of Saturn. Yesterday the space agency wowed again with the first ever photograph of Saturn, Mars, Venus, and Earth all in the same shot. The image spans about 404,880 miles (651,591 kilometers) across and is made from 141 wide-angle photos taken by Cassini. You can learn more about the image over on JPL’s site where you can even download some wallpapers. This is a good excuse to watch an interpretation of Carl Sagan’s Pale Blue Dot monologue. Or this one. (via PetaPixel)

The Missionary Position DVD Release Show at Hwy. 99 Blues Club: The Event of the Month, Maybe Even The Year!





Truly our musical heroes this year, when not touring with The Walking Papers, Jefferson Angell and Benjamin Anderson try their best to sneak some time in with their other amazing band, The Missionary Position! Occasionally graced by horns and a stand-up bass player, and as always including Michael Alex - Seattle's Most Adorable Drummer, every show is a new and uplifting experience full of Jeff's musical storytelling. And if you have not been to The Hwy. 99 Blues Club, you will realize when you get there that this is the perfect venue for this show: bluesy, sexy, and amazing food!
