They thought themselves ready, they thought themselves braced,
But soon through their minds all manner of thoughts raced.
Astonished and amazed was one Pinkie Pie,
Giggling as she looked down on Equestria's sky.
Fluttershy cowered and her mind filled with dread,
Wishing she was home fast asleep in her bed.
Rarity did her best to hold in her own fright,
As she stared in awe at the beauty of the sight.
Applejack grabbed hold in wonder and alarm,
They'd never believe this one back at the farm.
RD looked on and for once she was floored,
This was much higher than she'd ever soared.
Twilight stood free of gravity's fetter,
Thinking this might take more than simply one letter!
Yes I got it dear half of the comments the reflection is wrong I beg your pardon
"This is major Pinkie, a Russian soil return probe just landed on Twilight's head and drilled into her brain. No, I don't feel like partying."
I guess it will happen during the series, sooner or later XD
Great pic, of course
red roses too
I see em bloom
for me and for you
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world
Just remember, everypony - that pretty blue marble in the sky? All of history, everything that ponykind has ever done, every triumph, tragedy, achievement and setback all occurred on that distant object that you can block from sight with your hoof fully outstretched in front of you. Look back and remind yourself just how precious that place is and just how fortunate you are to represent your kind in stepping beyond that world into the endless unknown that lies beyond it.
Oh, you were talking about Princess Luna, not a spherical lander vehicle with battery and transmitter?
Well, they're both the same in brainpower
The point is, making the reflection of the planet more realistic and true-to-size would have compromized the artwork, as the reflection would have either covered ponies' faces or been unclear and small enough to ruin the "magic" of the moment.
So I decided to ignore a little of physics and astronomy for this pic.

Woona grins evily, "Too bad it's 100% carbon dioxide."
THEY ALL DIE!! 'Woona' transforms into that dark and evil filly! "MUWAH HA HA HA!! The night shall last FOREVER!!!"
Rarity: "Now Twilight, this isn't the perfect time to be humbled to the point of nihilism by this FABULOUS view of our homeworld! That orb looks just like one, BIG sapphire!"
