Pale Blue Dot: A Tribute to Carl Sagan is the first studio album released by Benn Jordan using his own name, instead of the various pseudonyms under which he generally releases his music, predominantly The Flashbulb.

Jordan shifts away from his typical drill n bass style with an original and flowing ambient album paying tribute to scientist Carl Sagan. The album title is an homage to the famous Pale Blue Dot photograph of Earth taken by Voyager 1 from over four billion miles away.
