Eye of God

Eye of God

This is an authentic photograph ? or rather, composite of photos ? taken by NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope and the Kitt Peak National Observatory in Arizona. It was featured on NASA’s Website as an Astronomy Picture of the Day in May 2003 and thereafter posted on a number of Websites under the title “The Eye of God”. The awe-inspiring image has also been featured on magazine covers and in articles about space imagery.

The image depicts the so-called Helix Nebula, described by astronomers as “a trillion-mile-long tunnel of glowing gases.” At its center is dying, Sun-like star which has ejected masses of dust and gas to form tentacle-like filaments stretching toward an outer rim composed of the same material. The Sun itself may look like this in several billion years.

I found this picture here.

  1. This is an awesome picture. I don’t know if I think God has eyes like ours, but I certainly do think His would be something huge and indescribable.
