Quote of the Day – Galileo Galilei on Viewing the Earth

on

On this day, in 1642 Galileo Galilei died. Almost every night, I look up at the sky and the stars in wonder, appreciating what’s out beyond our grasp. It’s moments like that, I still feel like a little kid.

“If you could see the earth illuminated when you were in a place as dark as night, it would look to you more splendid than the moon.” – Galileo Galilei
