How many of us look up at the Stars at night? How many of us look at The Astronomy Picture of the Day on the internet. To see all of the wonders out there, perhaps the best place to observe the universe is on the internet, even though from that vantage point, you will not feel the intimacy of a starry night.
To take a ride through the universe, we travel at the speed of light. In one year, the distance that we will travel at that speed is called a light year. Through the Hubble Telescope we travel many light years to see distant Galaxies. The furthest Galaxy we can see with the Hubble Telescope is over 13 Billion light years away
When we observe the Heavens, our first encounter with outer space is our Moon. As we travel further out, we next have our Planets, and then the Sun, our Star. As we look further out, we can see an estimated 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 Stars in the universe. Our Star is located in the Milky Way Galaxy, and beyond the Milky Way, we see a universe which contains 100 to 200 Billion Galaxies.
The size of the universe is greater than our words can describe. Look at the size of God’s Creation and realize how Great and Powerful He is. We should never forget this and know that nothing in our lives is too big for God to handle.
NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH GOD
