When I look at Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have set in place, what is man that You are mindful of him, the son of man that You care for him? – Psalm 8:3-4 (ESV)
If you haven’t seen them yet, the latest Webb Telescope images of Neptune’s rings are simply stunning.
What’s more, all of the information they have been able to uncover about the environment around Neptune is fascinating to read. If you haven’t already, I highly recommend taking a look around the Webb Telescope’s site and following its updates:
I am a NASA nerd from way back and I have been completely taken by the findings of Webb.
Back in July, I was astonished by the images that were shared of a dying star.
Here is a brief NASA article about these images:
What I most want to point to from the article though, is a thought not actually about the star, but about its surroundings that just blew me away:
These images also reveal a cache of distant galaxies in the background. Most of the multi-colored points of light seen here are galaxies – not stars.
We are looking at many GALAXIES around the image of this star. It’s hard to fathom the magnitude of this. It is just breathtaking.
Given the vastness of creation when I look to space and then also the beauty painted into the tiniest details I see every day as a plant lady, I am in constant wonderment at the glory and creative power of God.
There is so much to be thankful for. ❤
Be well, everybody. Take care of yourselves and each other.
Grace and Blessings.
