Earth-Moon ballet

This animation of the Earth-Moon system was made available by the BBC. The animation was produced by NASA.

This has to be seen by as many people as possible; it truly puts our planet into a different perspective. While you watch, remember that the entire Earth-Moon system that you see here is itself orbiting around the sun, which in turn is orbiting the centre of our Milky Way galaxy, which in turn is heading slowly towards an interaction with the Andromeda galaxy. If that doesn't inspire awe, nothing will!


  1. Wow! What a creative man! We also need Elon Musk and Steve Jobs style creativity in church! https://stevesimms.wordpress.com/2012/12/18/a-steve-jobs-of-religion-come-on-church-innovate/

  2. Thanks for your comment, Steve. I read your article and gave it a Google +1 because I like your approach to church meetings. I would enjoy being in your meetings (though I'm a very long way from Tennessee!)

    Have you come across Alan Hirsch's ideas? I think you'd like them :-) they could indeed be described as 'a new operating system for church life'. I wrote a short introductory guide called JDMC, let me know what you think of it.

  3. Yes, I like Allan Hirsch's ideas about the church. Look forward to checking out your JDMC soon.
