While we go through the mundane task of voting today let's take a moment to contemplate THE BIGGER PICTURE with a couple of photos courtesy of Astronomy Picture of the Day.
First up is a SELFIE taken by the Rosetta spacecraft, currently about 300 million miles from earth and 10 miles from Comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko on which it will attempt to land on November 12. The dual comet can be seen at the center top of the picture along with its surrounding gaseous cloud.
The next picture shows the Titan, the large moon of Saturn trying to hide behind the planet's rings. The small rock orbiting above the rings is the tiny moon Epimetheus.
