Did you 'wave at Saturn'? NASA's got your picture(CNN) — Remember when we all waved at Saturn last month while the Cassini-Huygens spacecraft took our picture? Well, NASA has finally gotten the film back from the drugstore — and you can see our whole world.

A good chunk of it, anyway.

People shared more than 1,400 images of themselves as part of the July 19 “Wave at Saturn” event, which was organized by NASA’s Cassini mission. On Tuesday, the space agency released a collage of those images, which — from a distance — looks like the portion of the Earth’s Western Hemisphere that Cassini viewed at the time.

Zoom in, however, and you can see everyday folks expressing their oneness with the ringed sixth planet from the sun. (The full-resolution version is here.)

“Hello Cassini,” says a chalked message in one photo.

“Thanks for helping Earth wave at me today. Love, Saturn,” read a handheld sign in another.
