Pale Blue Dot

The green circle in the title slide above shows the approximate position of Voyager 1
for the opening shot of this short video featuring the words and voice of Carl Segan.

The Pale Blue Dot is a photograph of planet Earth taken in 1990 by Voyager 1 from a record distance, showing it against the vastness of space. By request of Carl Segan, NASA commanded the Voyager 1 spacecraft, having completed its primary mission and now leaving the Solar System, to turn its camera around and to take a photograph of Earth across a great expanse of space.
