Breath of Life

Did you know that there are more stars in the universe than all the grains of sand on Earth’s beaches?

Recently the Hubble telescope was pointed for days into what astronomists call “an empty black patch of nothingness.”

As they looked at the dark void of space, the scientists discovered hundreds of billions of never-before-seen galaxies! Inside a typical galaxy, like the Milky Way, is an estimated one hundred billion stars.

The discovery led astronomists to update their estimate of galaxies in the universe from one hundred seventy billion to two trillion.

Not two trillion stars, but two trillion galaxies, each with billions of stars and numerous moons, planets, and heavenly bodies inside of them.

Doesn’t that make you want to look up at the sky tonight with wonder? What an unfathomably awesome creation!
