This giant spiral disk of stars, dust and gas is 170,000 light-years across, almost twice the diameter of our Milky Way galaxy. M101, called the Pinwheel Galaxy, is estimated to contain at least one trillion stars, and God knows each one by name (Isaiah 40:26). The Bible tells us that the God who created the heavens and the Earth has focused His infinite loving attention on each one of us, made in His image!
The heavens declare the glory of God! Psalm 19:1We too can glorify God as we marvel at all He has made.
Thanks for visiting Under Night Skies! My name is Nathan Volle and over the years I have enjoyed introducing people to the wonder of the night sky and giving tours of the star-filled heavens inside the planetarium dome. As you look around this site, you will find links to some fun educational pages that can help you explore the majesty of the heavens. There are also some downloadable handouts you might find useful.
