The Tarantula nebula is located 170,000 light-years from Earth in the Large Magellanic Cloud, one of the smaller satellite galaxies that hover around our own Milky Way. Inside the nebula is 30 Doradus, which, because of its local proximity to our galaxy, has long been a cosmic laboratory of sorts for astronomers studying how stars are born and evolve.The image covers an area about 650 light-years across that includes so many stars that their mass would add up to millions of our own sun if combined, they added. (One light-year is the distance light travels in a year, about 6 trillion miles, or 10 trillion kilometers). Here are more details and photos.

    And, yet, then to ponder that this was created on day 4 of creation week, and that its light, so far away from us by our measurements, is already here showing us this majestic view.

    Our God is indeed an Awesome God.

    A good site daily to visit for more astronomy pictures is http://apod.nasa.gov (“apod” is “astronomy picture of the day”).

    The Hubble Space Telescope (HST) has given us some truly wondrous images, as have many of the instruments we’ve sent into space. I remember being amazed at the images of Jupiter and Saturn sent back by the Pioneer spacecraft, only to have the pics from the Voyagers blow the Pioneer images out of the water!

    One of the iconic images from HST was a part of the Orion Nebula dubbed “the Pillars of Creation.” The “pillars” of dust and gas look so breathtakingly big, and yet they are but a TINY portion of a much, much bigger structure within the Nebula! All of this is mere child’s play to the Creator. He is the Artist.
