The Heavens Declare…

The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork. Psalm 19:1 ESV

The European Southern Observatory recently released an absolutely ginormous 9 gigapixel image showing over 84 million stars from the ‘central bulge’ of our own Milky Way Galaxy. Link: eso1242 Photo Release

I find this to be incredibly staggering… according to Wired Magazine the image is 108,200 by 81,500 pixels in size. If the full resolution 24.6 gigabyte image were to be printed it would measure 30 feet tall and 23 feet wide… and yet the image only captures a relatively small portion of only one galaxy.

How anyone could contemplate this with an open mind** and then walk away unconvinced that there is an all powerful creator God is beyond me.

**Because atheists have eliminated even the possibility of the existence of a supreme being– atheists, by definition, do not have an open mind.
