In my dreams the world would come alive, becoming so captivatingly majestic, free and ethereal, that afterwards it would be oppressive to breathe the dust of this painted life.

In my opinion, one of the best things humanity has captured on video. Done in 1979 by Voyager 1 as it approached Jupiter.
This footage is hypnotizing. It will never fail to blow my mind that the rest of the universe exists and is real and out there waiting to be discovered.
