Loving the Moment

I've got a handful of websites that I check daily, a couple comic strips and APOD. APOD is Astronomy Picture of the Day, a wonderful simple site that showcases pictures from the world of science, with an emphasis on astronomy. The Hubble Space telescope has taken some amazing deep space pictures that are just staggering in their awesome beauty.

"The nebula, shown above, holds a complex tapestry of gas, dark dust, stars still forming, and newly born stars. The intricate patterns are caused by complex interactions between interstellar winds, radiation pressures, magnetic fields, and gravity. NGC 6357 spans about 400 light years and lies about 8,000 light years away toward the constellation of the Scorpion."

Okay, well that's the technical explanation of it. To me, it looks like Divine Artwork on an enormous scale. It's a beautiful tapestry of cosmic art!

See how others are Loving the Moment!
