    • Solar annular eclipse of January 15, 2010 in  Jinan, Republic of China
      By A013231 (Own work)
    • Let us take a moment
      to appreciate the grandness and richness of creation
      to praise our Creator
      to look on with amazement at what the Lord has done
    • The Sombrero Galaxy
    • Where were you
      when I founded
      the earth? Tell me,
      if you have
      understanding.
      (Job 38:4)
    • He who made the earth by his power, established the
      world by his wisdom, and stretched out the heavens
      by his skill.
      Jeremiah 10:12 
    • In the beginning, when God created the heavens and the earth, the earth was a formless wasteland, and darkness covered the abyss, while a mighty wind swept over the waters.
    • Then God said, "Let there be light," and
      there was light. God saw how good the
      light was. God then separated the light
      from the darkness
      Genesis 1:1-4
    • May you be blessed by
      the LORD, who made heaven and earth.
      (Psalms 115:15)

      Image Description: A colony of hot, young stars is stirring up the cosmic scene in this new picture from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope. The image shows the Orion nebula, a happening place where stars are born. The young stars dip and peak in brightness due to a variety of reasons. Shifting cold and hot spots on the stars' surfaces cause brightness levels to change, in addition to surrounding disks of lumpy planet-forming material, which can obstruct starlight. Spitzer is keeping tabs on the young stars, providing data on their changing ways. The hottest stars in the region, called the Trapezium cluster, are bright spots at centre right. Radiation and winds from those stars has sculpted and blown away surrounding dust. The densest parts of the cloud appear dark at centre left.

      Image Description: This image of the Sombrero Galaxy is a mosaic of six images taken by the Hubble Space Telescope's Advanced Camera for Surveys in May and June 2003 (exposition time: 10.2 hours). The famous Sombrero galaxy (M104) is a bright nearby spiral galaxy. The prominent dust lane and halo of stars and globular clusters give this galaxy its name. Something very energetic is going on in the Sombrero's center, as much X-ray light has been detected from it. This X-ray emission coupled with unusually high central stellar velocities cause many astronomers to speculate that a black hole lies at the Sombrero's center - a black hole a billion times the mass of our Sun.

      Image Description: In January 2002, a dull star in an obscure constellation suddenly became 600,000 times more luminous than our Sun, temporarily making it the brightest star in our Milky Way galaxy. The mysterious star, called V838 Monocerotis, has long since faded back to obscurity. But observations by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope of a phenomenon called a "light echo" around the star have uncovered remarkable new features. These details promise to provide astronomers with a CAT-scan-like probe of the three-dimensional structure of shells of dust surrounding an aging star.

      Image Description: The spiral galaxy Messier 81 is tilted at an oblique angle on to our line of sight, giving a "birds-eye view" of the spiral structure. The galaxy is similar to our Milky Way, but our favorable view provides a better picture of the typical architecture of spiral galaxies. Though the galaxy is 11.6 million light-years away, NASA Hubble Space Telescope's view is so sharp that it can resolve individual stars, along with open star clusters, globular star clusters, and even glowing regions of fluorescent gas.
