Electronic images have radiated into space since the invention of television. But, as in picture books, the images are for our eyes only. Any extraterrestrial reception amounts to eavesdropping. Not this time. For by deliberately beaming these “postcards,” it is we earthlings who eavesdrop. 

Please click on the "image gallery" link, above, for the series of photos displaying scenes from around the world, including Niger, Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, China, Japan, and even outer space.
