The Heavens Declare The Glory Of God

NASA released this photo several years ago. It was taken by the Hubble Space Telescope. It has been a popular picture to email to people for several years now. The Helix Nebula has been given the name "the eye of God."

I was reminded of the picture again recently while watching the DVD "Indescribable." It is a message by Louie Giglio. A great message proclaiming the glories of God.

Psalm 19:1 says, "The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands."

It is an amazing picture that should continue to remind us of how great our God is for creating all of these amazing things for us to enjoy.

Info From Wikipedia:

The Helix Nebula (also known as NGC 7293) is a planetary nebula (PN) about 650 light-years away in the constellation Aquarius. It is one of the closest planetary nebulae to Earth and was discovered by Karl Ludwig Harding before 1824. It has a very similar appearance to the Ring Nebula. It is also similar in size, age, and physical characteristics to the Dumbbell Nebula, with the significant difference in appearance being a consequence of the relative proximity and more nearly equatorial viewing angle of the Dumbbell. The Helix has often been referred to as the Eye of God on the Internet, since about 2003.
