New NASA photos


NASA has finished some repairs and upgrades to the Hubble Telescope and is releasing beautiful new images from space. You can view a slide show here.

My favorite picture was the Abell Galaxy Cluster, located 5 billion light years away. My mind can't comprehend that kind of distance! It's so far way that the gravitational fields of closer galaxies stretch the light and warp the appearance of galaxies lying further back.

O how wise and beautiful is our Almighty Creator!
Psalm 19:1 The heavens are telling of the glory of God; And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands.
Romans 1:20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.

    I am always overwhelmed with the size of creation. to think that however big the creation is, it requires something bigger and more beautiful to produce it.
