recently a friend showed me this website that nasa updates each day.

this is the most amazing picture i have ever seen of space.
this is The Tadpoles of IC 410

'Explanation: This close-up view shows a portion of otherwise faint emission nebula IC 410 in striking false-colors. It also shows two remarkable denizens of the glowing gas cloud at the right - the "tadpoles" of IC 410. The picture is a composite of images taken through narrow band filters intended to trace atoms in the nebula. Emission from sulfur atoms is shown in red, hydrogen atoms in green, and oxygen in blue. Partly obscured by foreground dust, the nebula itself surrounds NGC 1893, a young galactic cluster of stars that energizes the glowing gas. Composed of denser, cooler gas and dust, the tadpoles are around 10 light-years long. Sculpted by wind and radiation from the cluster stars, their tails trail away from the cluster's central region. IC 410 lies some 12,000 light-years away, toward the constellation Auriga. At that distance, this image spans about 70 light-years.'

Im actually taking an Astronomy class right now and its just so amazing to think of the huge universe that God created. And it's just so amazing. I mean, the fact that all of that is out there and is so amazing and we're here on this beautiful earth. It's just undescribable. One day I want the Creator to just tell me everything about it.

A few years ago NASA pointed the Hubble telescope into the darkest corner of the Hubble's range, thinking the picture would come out black. Just plain ol' black. But when the pictures were developed - ta-da! - the most amazing display of galaxies and stars. If such amazing sights were found in the darkest corner, I wonder what else is out there (since we only see half of the universe, as the "arms" of our spiral galaxy block the other half.)

My personal favorite is the "Eye of God." IT's like a giant blue eye - pretty cool.
