(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.

Hi Everyone the three of us have been trying to get out and walk in between snow storms. We have gone when he goes detecting and he even found more rings. I lost a few more pounds but going to Mom’s and she is baking me a cake for my birthday and also has a New England Boiled Dinner is on the menu for us. I am blessed to still have her to celebrate with.
I am starting my day off early by getting my haircut, it is long and always in my face and lately it spends more time up in a clip so now is the time for a change to go with all the weight loss. Another year older and still on track to be a better healthier me. I love reading your blogs when I can get the reader to work. I am trying to follow you by email so bear with me. I have placed almost 400 photos for sale on-line and now as I get ready to go on my 10 day silent retreat I hope I come back to lots of sales. I will miss you all when I am gone as much as my dog and family, you bring me much joy in your posts. I miss doing two a day but as my followers rose in numbers it was hard to keep up but when I come back to it in April , I will be lighter in my heart and body, they won’t feed us much. Water and maybe breakfast and a lunch but no supper just tea and fruit at 4 PM them meditate till 9:30 PM we will start each day in meditation at 4 AM. My son suggested I jump right in the deep end! So with him having done it to heal his hurt and pain I am looking forward to my gift to myself. You know I will tell you all about it!
So let me show you what we have been doing while we wait for the next shoe to fall, MORE SNOW!
Surf was wild and dirty
Yes that is a pile of thick foam
What a knucklehead I yell for her to watch out but the FRISBEE in my hand she is not moving till I threw it . I don’t think she saw this heading at her.
Look at her she is covered with the filthy foam, she was not happy when I said she would need a bath. I am a bad Mommy to but her in tub with Luke Warm Water with pretty smelling soap but she will jump in the filthy sea of FOAM.
Her last catch time to get Daddy’s truck dirty.
Hope to touch base with you soon
I took this photo yesterday along the river but facing out to sea. It was beautiful over here, less wind then when JT and I tried to join her daddy on the ocean side, man was it cold and a very brisk wind. Cold we can take but that constant wind is not good and I am bundled up, well all but my weather-beaten face and to protect her from the harsh elements I have gone through my whole life, we walked over here to take shelter from the storm that was brewing.
What a deceiving day. It was so pretty to look at. Made me what to shower and get dressed and head out with him. I was down another two pounds on Tuesday weigh-in so I wanted to keep up the hard work. Funny you see something working even if it causes pain I am the type that has always been tough and just pushed through it. I am not saying it is smart , just saying more about who I am.
I have one month left before I leave and want to take in all my world has to offer. I want to walk and spend time with them. I will miss the three of them, who share this home with me. My son said he missed his pup but knowing she was with friends allowed him to take on the challenge himself so I will let go and trust. JT loves me as much as Mike’s dog adores him but Mike does spend time during the day without his girl and JT is always beside me lol I am her person. She watches over me and protects me even when I am not in danger so maybe after she gets over missing me for first few days she will become a dog again. Something tells me we will be like that commercial that runs here, of the lady coming back from war with her huge dog greeting her on the ground covering her with kisses, will also be played out here, hell being on the floor meditating for 10 days 14 hours a day will have the ground being normal for me. Wish me luck! lol
OK back to the REAL STORM BREWING this morning I woke to a weather report saying maybe we would miss a big snowstorm Thank You for listening to my prayers this time now they say just three to four inches but wet snow this time. JT loves catching snowballs she will be so happy. Now I will show you a few photos from the river as the sea. They are not my best and I am sorry I was freezing and will blame them on the wind!
Now look at the next pictures don’t them make it seem like it is just a beautiful day to SUNTAN
Not a care in the world.
A Loner lol no room for anyone else on this ones beach.
OK want to see some more again sorry shaking too much for really pretty ones but I am sure you will love them.
Now the mighty Atlantic Ocean was really churning and so frothy. The storm was still a twelve-hour ride away down in Virginia. So I really thought we would be getting another NEMO like storm. Looks can be deceiving right beautiful blue sky pretty colorful sea. BRRRRRRR
Wind blown JT waits for me to throw a hefty stick to her. No FRISBEE in these winds.
Well you can see she is tiring of me and my photos time to go for a walk
Have a nice weekend
We got there the other day and when we saw the waves and this heavy stone thrown up on the beach it was more than he could stand. It was too rough to wade into so we went up the road two beach areas away where he found THE Newest Piece of BLING 🙂 and tons of money, coins but money is money isn’t it.
Well they say there will be another coastal storm brewing just off our shoreline, so it is time to walk the edge, as the tide turns and heads out and look and see what it has left behind for us. It will be sunny and in the 40’s what a perfect BEACH DAY JT likes to walk me into the water so maybe I will even be barefoot.
No matter the weather
Sun or Clouds
I love this place so much
Wave after wave
Right on the heels of another
Spraying water all around
I guess maybe I am drawn to the sea for her POWER
As it is so plain to see
Waves roll onto the shore after making their display
I really could just sit here with the camera
The dog too
Photo after photo, all the same but really just a little different
Can you see
How I love the Sea
It poured again this morning but they promised sun by this afternoon
So we headed north into Maine to look for treasure and so exercise.
The dog and I got too much time on the beach both of us hurting bad.
He found earrings and change.
We saw a hint of the sun as we headed out across the marsh on our way home
Too many rain drops getting on the lens so I did the best I could with these
I will try harder the next time.
The beaches along New England are constantly being battered.
Storm after storm starts to change the landscape.of our shore.
Wave after wave rolls in with a fury.
We have sea walls to keep it from our homes, though we continue to build in harm’s way.
Homes are lost, lives are changed, personal items lost to the sea.
As a home is lost, plans to rebuild get underway.
This story will have updates along the way, as it is forever changing in these parts ,we call home.
Millions are spent to save the homes of those, who just had to get as close to the sea, as they could.
Permits are given out to build another in its place.
Taxes are spent on baffles, to try to keep erosion at bay.
It as you can clearly see it is not working.
Just a waste of money in my point of view, to fight a force so much stronger than man.
The more beach we have left the happier she will be lol
