NASA - Jellyfish Nebula

This NASA Image reflects the remnants of a Supernova seen in various infrared wavelengths which are represented by the various  array of colors seen in this beautiful image of just one relatively small area of our universe. This “Jellyfish Nebula” is officially called IC 443. I never cease to be amazed by the images that our taxpayer dollars regularly produce through all of the modern-day technology.

Along with the Hubble telescope, there are numerous other telescopes that are able to see in normal light as well as all of the other spectrum of light including ultra violet and infrared and then are released to the public when possible. This image is from the “WISE” observatory which searches in the infrared range of light. We need not forget the radio telescopes that search the heavens for other types of information as well. Between the galaxies, nebulae, supernovae, black holes and things that are yet to be understood like dark matter keep our, as well as other star-gazers busy around the clock and around the world.

NASA Hubble Telescope Image of the M84 Galaxy, Massive Black Hole

NASA Released  this single image of a super-massive black hole taken by the imaging spectrograph aboard the Hubble Space Telescope. The super-massive black hole is large enough for 300 million of our suns, which is called 300 million solar masses, to fit within the black hole and is in the galaxy called M84 which is part of the Virgo cluster of galaxies. M84 black hole is about 26 light years from the center of its galaxy and about 50 million light years from Earth. This same super-massive black hole is moving at 880,000 miles per hour. The relatively close by galaxy called M87 also has a super-massive black hole relatively near its galaxy’s center.

The heavens truly declare the Glory of GOD and this is regularly confirmed by the Hubble telescope as well as others both in orbit and on the ground. The Bible has been confirmed by scientific data such as this.  More and more scientists are at least secretly acknowledging  the fact that creation is the only possible conclusion available but might lose their tenure or their job altogether, if they speak their minds. May GOD be glorified through His wonderful creation day by day even in this secular society. May the LORD be glorified.
