E quindi uscimmo a riveder le stelle.

Lo duca e io per quel cammino ascoso 
intrammo a ritornar nel chiaro mondo; 
e sanza cura aver d’alcun riposo, 
salimmo su, el primo e io secondo, 
tanto ch’i’ vidi de le cose belle 
che porta ‘l ciel, per un pertugio tondo. 
E quindi uscimmo a riveder le stelle. 

My guide and I came on that hidden road 
to make our way back into the bright world; 
and with no care for any rest, we climbed 
he first, I following until I saw, 
through a round opening, some of those things 
of beauty Heaven bears. It was from there 
that we emerged, to see once more the stars.

Dante, Inferno, Canto IV

Taken from a blog post written up by David Seal, Cassini Mission Planner.

No profound thoughts or reasons, I just really really enjoyed what he had to say and am sharing it here.
