Watching us

The photo shows an artificial huge lit globe suspended over a narrow valley, seen through the densely forested slopes. It could be mother Earth seen from an alien world. As the globe rotated slowly I managed to capture the Pacific filling the entire circle, thus misleading some people into believing it is the moon surface. Below right there is a discrete human figure, the only key to establish that we are seeing the Earth... from the Earth.
