Are We Being Watched?

Well of course we are.  Cornea, iris, pupil…

This amazing galaxy appears to be watching us.  Courtesy of NASA, this view of “Hoag’s Object” raises more questions than it answers.  The main star cluster in the center is surrounded by a doughnut-shaped ring of stars, with empty space in between!  You can actually see more distant stars and another ring-shaped galaxy through the doughnut hole. Also lots of other, farther-away galaxies are scattered around the picture.

And yet…  All this was once so compact and tiny that it would fit in YOUR hand.

See NASA and Psalm 19 for more information.
