Heavenly Eye Candy: The latest images from the Hubble Telescope

These are simply ineffable. Whenever I see this kind picture of the heavenly bodies, I think of the biblical exclamation of awe and wonder:

“O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is thy name in all the earth! Thou whose glory above the heavens is chanted by the mouth of babes and infants, thou hast founded a bulwark because of thy foes,
to still the enemy and the avenger. When I look at thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars which thou hast established; what is man that thou art mindful of him, and the son of man that thou dost care for him? Yet thou hast made him little less than God, and dost crown him with glory and honor. Thou hast given him dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet.”

  3. I may have enjoyed your post but that inscrutable word "ineffable" that Bp Trautman tried in vain to shelter me from was in the first sentence. The FIRST SENTENCE!

    I'm afraid I couldn't finish the rest of the post and have no idea whether you were posting in favor of, or opposed to, the picture, or even if the picture was related to the post. Perhaps it was just an ironic juxtaposition.
