Photo - Flame Nebula


The Flame Nebula

The Flame Nebula sits on the eastern hip of Orion the Hunter, a constellation most easily visible in the northern hemisphere during winter evenings. This image shows a vast cloud of gas and dust where new stars are being born.  The Flame Nebula is the brightest and largest in the image. It is lit by a star inside it that is 20 times the mass of the sun and would be as bright to our eyes as the other stars in Orion's belt if it weren't for all the surrounding dust, which makes it appear 4 billion times dimmer than it actually is.

I am amazed at the images that NASA takes.  Sure there is technical things like above.  What I see is a beautiful image that God has made.  It looks as if it's a guardian angel reaching out to someone.  I love to see the images that are in space.  They have been there for all time yet we only get to see them now due to technology.  Just like there is as spirit realm that we can not see unless He gives us the ability to truly see it.  We are so small indeed.  Makes me think that the cares and concerns I have are not at big as I think them to be.
