Heart-shaped clouds at sunset

Heart-shaped clouds at sunset. The photographer wrote, “I read a book once, talking of God’s Glory. His Glory is truly amazing, and we have no idea of how wonderful it is. All I know is that He led the children of Israel with a cloud by day, and a fire by night. I think that was a manifestation of His Glory. Not all of His Glory, but the part He used to help them. He wants to help each of us too. Could we imagine a cloud or a fire leading us? In Scripture it says that the things unseen are more real than those that are seen. So, maybe if we imagined God’s helping us more, we’d see more of His Present Help in our situations. God bless you with His Glory!” Photo #32 by Laura Ferreira

Pandora's Cluster Revealed HEART

Pandora’s Cluster Revealed Heart. “One of the most complicated and dramatic collisions between galaxy clusters ever seen is captured in this new composite image. This collision site, known officially as Abell 2744, has been dubbed “Pandora’s Cluster” because of the wide variety of different structures seen. Data from NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory are colored red, showing gas with temperatures of millions of degrees. In blue is a map showing the total mass concentration (mostly dark matter) based on data from the Hubble Space Telescope (HST), the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope (VLT), and the Japanese Subaru telescope. Optical data from HST and VLT also show the constituent galaxies of the clusters.” Photo #37 by X-ray: NASA/CXC/ITA/INAF/J. Merten et al.

Heart and Soul nebulae

The Heart and Soul nebulae are seen in this infrared mosaic from NASA’s Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer, or WISE. Also visible near the bottom of this image are two galaxies, Maffei 1 and Maffei 2. Maffei 1 is the bluish elliptical object and Maffei 2 is the spiral galaxy. All four infra-red detectors aboard WISE were used to make this image. Colour is representational: blue and cyan represent infra-red light at wavelengths of 3.4 and 4.6 microns, which is dominated by light from stars. Green and red represent light at 12 and 22 microns, which is mostly light from warm dust. Photo #38 by NASA/JPL-Caltech/UCLA
