This morning I want to share this incredible image that was released yesterday by NASA. For the first time ever, we can see an Overview of the entire sunlit side of the Earth from one million miles away.

We are definitely feeling the Overview Effect in this photograph taken of Bruce McCandless II by his fellow crewmembers aboard the Earth-orbiting Space Shuttle Challenger on February 7, 1984. At this stage in his mission, he was approaching his maximum distance from the vehicle. The first American to conduct a spacewalk was astronaut Edward H. White II when he floated into the vastness of space on June 3, 1965. Credit: NASA
