A less species-specific envisioning of Dr.Sagan's stirring passage from his book "The Pale Blue Dot". Please Digg, StumbleUpon, etc. This version was created by Joshua Sellers, AKA jokerkiwi http://www.youtube.com/user/jokerkiwi for showing at the Utica-Rome Green Expo in Clinton NY. It also won raves at the Albany Veg Expo Speakers' Dinner that same weekend.

This is considered the semi-official PBD for the Sagan Appreciation Society. The central image of the Earth as a Pale Blue Dot was shot on Valentine's Day in 1990.

About that beam of light: the abberation likely comes from the optics themselves: "The Narrow-Angle camera optics is a 1500mm f/8.5 all-spherical, catadioptric cassegrain telescope (a modified MVM 1973 design) consisting of five elements plus an additional dust lens located between the shutter and the vidicon"
