Pale Blue Dot is a 2-D animation by London-based studio ORDER, a visual response to the famed “Pale Blue Dot piece where he muses on our planet’s appearance in a photograph taken by the Voyager 1 space probe. The most distant photograph ever taken of Earth.

“This was a personal project, designed and created in After Effects with extensive sound work created to sit alongside the music from ‘Cosmos’ and the spoken word from Sagan.”
