"What beauty. I saw clouds and their light shadows on the distant dear earthâ€¦. The water looked like darkish, slightly gleaming spotsâ€¦. When I watched the horizon, I saw the abrupt, contrasting transition from the earthâ€™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."
