The Rings of Earth

This is amazing:

The view from Ecuador is what I always pictured the Ringworld looking like… Can you imagine New York illuminated by the Earth’s rings at night? I can’t help but wonder how human civilization would be different if our planet did have rings. Don’t know how Earth would ever have acquired rings in the first place. A dwarf moon that broke up in orbit? Hmm. Maybe a story in there somewhere…
