Beautiful: Earth, as seen from 900 million miles away (with new photos)

Need a little perspective in your life? Take a look at these images of Earth as seen from almost 900 million miles away.

In these new images released by NASA, our planet is dwarfed by Saturn’s breathtaking rings, and shows up as just a pale blue dot — a tiny asterisk beneath Saturn’s striking beauty.

The dot is so small, it would seem insignificant if you didn’t know you were looking at our own watery home.
