Psalm 103:11 “For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
So great is His lovingkindness toward those who fear Him.”
NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope took this picture, Hubble’s Advanced Camera for Surveys was not looking at any particular target. The camera was taking a picture of a typical patch of sky, while Hubble’s infrared camera was viewing a target in an adjacent galaxy-rich region.
Billions of dollars have been spent to study the universe and yet randomly taken images reveal the glory of God in every direction they look!
The dramatic blue arc in the center of the photo — is likely an optical illusion. The blue arc is probably an image of a distant galaxy that has been smeared into the odd shape by a phenomenon called gravitational lensing. This effect occurs when light from a distant object is bent and stretched by the mass of an intervening object. In this case the gravitational lens, or intervening object, is a red elliptical galaxy possibly 6 billion light-years from Earth. The distant object whose image is smeared into the long blue arc is possibly 10 billion light-years away.
To see it from God’s revelation perspective—Psalm 33:6 Says, “(He) merely spoke, and the heavens were created.” !
