Pilgrimage Vignette

The above vignette utilizes NASA/JPL images taken by the Galileo Orbiter in 1997, the primary image being of Jupiter's moon Europa. On that I overlaid a swatch of blue taken from a false color Galileo image credited to NASA/JPL/University of Arizona. The rest of this piece is original. It was generated using Adobe Photoshop CS5.

For another cosmic poem, read Humility.

--Jake Christensen
