The Cassini spacecraft took a picture of Earth from the dark side of Saturn on July 19, 2013. The image is called “The Day Earth Smiled” because of a campaign to bring smiles to earthlings in the void in unison.

“This might be a day, I thought, when all of Earth’s inhabitants, in unison, could let out a full-throated cosmic cry and smile a big smile for the cameras from far, far away,” Carolyn Porco, the chef from the Cassini imaging team who designed the photoshoot, wrote in June 2013.
