One of my favorite astronomy pictures. A mountain of dust and gas rising in the Carina Nebula. The top of a three-light-year tall pillar of cool hydrogen is being worn away by the radiation of nearby stars, while stars within the pillar unleash jets of gas that stream from the peaks.

the Eagle Nebula ... When I Look at these many amazing views my heart swells up so much from overwhelming WONDER at this Universe of Versatality. I see God's POWER in them all. I see something that is so expansive that it's impossible for us to EVER really reach understanding. I realize as i write this that maybe we aren't meant too that what we should do is acknowledge and appreciate LIFE.
