* In ''Film/{{Apollo 13}}'', the crew is forced to abort their moon landing after an accident, but to get home, they must orbit around the moon. During their orbit, they see their intended landing site, and flight commander Jim Lovell (Creator/TomHanks) [[ImagineSpot imagines what it would've been like if they landed]], walking, running his hands through the moon dust, and staring in awe at the distant Earth. As his fellow aistronauts enthuse over the staggering sights they can see through the windows, he covers the Earth with his thumb, reveals it again, and asks quietly, "Gentlemen, what are your intentions? ({{Beat}}) I'd like to go home." The sentiment is also referenced early in the movie, as he looks up at the moon after the successful landing of the Apollo 11 mission: "From now on, we live in a world where man has walked on the Moon. And it's not a miracle. [[HumansAreSpecial We just decided to go.]]"

[[folder:Theme Parks]]
* This is pretty much the point of the [[Ride/DisneyThemeParks Disney]] attraction, ''Soarin' Around the World'' and its predecessor, ''Soarin Over California'', with both of them being a simulation of flying over some of the most awe-inspiring locations in the world.
** Epcot also has ''Impressions de France'', ''Wonders of China'', and ''O Canada!'' The first is a tour of France projected on ''five'' connected movie screens for a wrap-around effect, and the other two are full-on Circlevision 360, which is exactly what it sounds like.
** The experience also includes ''Illuminations'', which is one-third this, one-third SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic, and one-third SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome for Disney World's practical effects crew.

** The very first time you beam down to a planet. You've just escaped destruction, you've been cooped up on a small, beaten ship, and... suddenly you stand on this beautiful, unspoiled green planet that's just waiting for you to explore and build to your heart's content.

* Happens to the Critic in {{WebVideo/ToBoldlyFlee}} when he opened the door and saw [[spoiler:the real world]]. It's generic suburbia, but it's done with excellent music, acting, and camera angles which makes an otherwise mundane scene beautiful.

* ''VideoGame/HaloReach:'' Try flying around Forge World in a Hawk. You'll get this effect.
** The series greatest example was probably the second mission of the first game, simply titled "Halo." To walk out of your ship, witness the natural landscape, and see the horizon curve up into the sky...
