NASA’s Spitzer and Hubble Space Telescopes have captured some incredibly beautiful and awe-inspiring images of space, many of which they have made available online to the public with open permission for a wide range of uses.
I don’t pretend to understand exactly what I’m seeing in these (images below). (The captions are taken from the notes on NASA’s site). But they do fill me with wonder. Just think: the God who made the galaxies, the nebulas, and the supernovas is the same God who cares about the sparrows. Wow.
We sing the mighty power of God
that made the mountains rise,
that spread the flowing seas abroad
and built the lofty skies…
while all that borrows life from you
is ever in your care,
and everywhere that we can be,
you, God, are present there. (- Isaac Watts, 1674- 1748)
