Today is Earth Day, celebrated annually on April 22. The first Earth Day occurred in 1970, a little more than a year after this photograph - “Earthrise" - was captured by Apollo 8 astronaut, Bill Anders. The crew was the first to travel beyond Earth's orbit, yet it was Anders description of the mission that says it all: “We went to the moon, but we actually discovered Earth.” /// As you might imagine, this day means quite a lot to us at Daily Overview. Our project was created with the purpose to inspire greater appreciation for our planet and greater awareness of what we are doing to it and how urgent it is to protect it. Today is an opportunity to reflect on our shared home, this place we all inhabit, floating in an infinite sea of darkness. How grateful are we to occupy such a remarkable place. Wherever you are and whatever you do, we hope it is a beautiful day. /// - @benjaminrgrant, image courtesy of @nasa
