During the shutdown, NASA couldn't promote any of its work. So you might not have seen this mosaic image of Saturn, taken by the Cassini spacecraft last week.

Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark seasons and days and years. And let them be light in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth.

Much can be learned from the study of the planets and the stars and the constellations. Each has special vibrations. Each is important. Each affects the people of Earth.

-------------------------------------------------------
May I salute the planets, the stars and the Creator.

Speak then to me, Oh, Keeper of wisdom,
secrets that You would have me to know.
Speak then that I in resource to fountain
share cup with children thirsting below.

Few are the men who look 'neath the surface,
women who seek the dreamless, the song.
Few are the chosen sad children wandering,
weeping in shadow, "Oh, Lord, how long?"

Speak then and I shall know of thy goodness,
give for that sweetness life as I know
scorn then cruel darts thrown in ignorance,
unshamed shall drink the truth that You flow.

Speak then, thy servant heareth.
