As we rise through the air to altitude in our magnificent machine, we glimpse the earth and our home within it from the point of view of our bigger selves. The sun behind us flings a half-shadow upon the opposite horizon, and in a trick of perspective makes it appear to emanate from the distance, when it is actually converging towards it. Soon we will follow it down to our own part of the world, with the larger view still vivid in memory.
