Can you see it? That speck of dust suspended in a sunbeam. That's us. That's the Earth.
This photo seems to make us more or less significant. We can't decide which.
The iconic image - which became known as the Pale Blue Dot - was taken in 1990 from the Voyager 1 space probe from a distance of about 6 billion kilometres.
NASA released a remastered version of it to mark the 30-year anniversary.
The spacecraft - a robotic explorer - had completed its mission. It had flown past and photographed Jupiter and Saturn in close-up and sent a trove of scientific data back to Earth.
Having completed its initial mission, the spacecraft was headed for deep, distant space. NASA turned off the craft's cameras to conserve power for its journey into interstellar space. Before they did so, they decided to take some final photos of Earth and other planets.
The photos became known as the Family Portrait or Portrait of the Planets.
It was astronomer Carl Sagan's idea to take the pictures. He came up with the Pale Blue Dot name for the photo of Earth. In his 1994 book Pale Blue Dot, he wrote: Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it, everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilisation, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there - on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.
Voyager 1 is still travelling at about 62,000 kilometres an hour. No other human-made object has gone so far. And it was the first one to leave the Solar System.
For Col Maybury, of the Astronomical Society of the Hunter, Sagan's words were among the "greatest statements made by a man of science".
Col recalled that Sagan - who died in 1996 - had a popular TV series called Cosmos which "reached out to billions of people around the world".
"His book Cosmos was 50 weeks on the best-sellers list. It was acclaimed as the best-selling science book ever published and introduced our fellow citizens to the wonders of space and the cosmos," Col said.
The anniversary of the Pale Blue Dot photo held deep significance for Col. It coincided with the one-year anniversary of his wife Marcy's final moments in Kurri Kurri Hospital.
"At 1.40am on February 15, 2019 with me alone at her side, she slipped away into the wonderful cosmos of Carl Sagan," Col said.
A ship named Corona Kingdom sailed into Newcastle Port on Sunday.
Thing is, it didn't come from China. It came from South Korea.
Strangely enough, a ship called the Corona Dynamic is due in port on Tuesday. It's coming from South Korea.
On Thursday, the Corona Wisdom will arrive from Japan. On Monday, the Corona Xanadu will arrive from Soma [that's a port in Fukushima, Japan. Crikey! If it's not coronavirus fear, it's radiation fear!].
The Corona Garland is also due on Monday from Taiwan. The Corona Horizon is expected on Friday week from Japan.
What does it all mean? Probably nothing.
