What beauty.
I saw clouds and their light shadows on the distant dear earth.
The water looked like darkish, slightly gleaming spots.
When I watched the horizon, I saw the abrupt, contrasting transition from the earth’s light-colored surface to the absolutely black sky.
I enjoyed the rich color spectrum of the earth.
It is surrounded by a light blue aureole that gradually darkens, becoming turquiose, dark blue, violet, and finally coal black.
Juri Alexejewitsch Gagarin (1934–1968)
