A collage of old and new perspectives of Jupiter, Saturn, comets, Pluto, Europa, Mars, the Sun, and deepest space.

A collage of old and new perspectives of Jupiter, Saturn, comets, Pluto, Europa, Mars, the Sun, and deepest space.  When New Horizons reaches Pluto in 2015, we will have the after picture.  Likewise Europa when we launch a mission there.  And Hubble’s Ultra Deepfield image will likely be superseded by even more amazing photos from JWST.

Background is a raw image (i.e., uncalibrated and unvalidated) by Cassini; the intended image target was Atlas.  Image credit: Image Credit: NASA/JPL/Space Science Institute.  Text used to build poem was borrowed from John Goad's 1699 "Astro-Meteorologica."

Haiku I wrote for my 5,000th tweet honoring the Cassini mission to Saturn.  The haiku uses text from Christaan Huygens' "Celestial Worlds" (1698).  The wavy background made from picture of kimono fabric.
