The Eye of God

Bette Midler sings a song, entitled, “From a Distance”, in which are the lyrics, God is watching you, God is watching you, from a distance. This song takes on an eerie truth when considered in light of the recent pictures taken from our galaxy. Take a look at the Helix nebular.

A new spectacular image has been taken of the Helix nebula – many consider, my self included, the Helix nebula to be one of the most awesome objects in our universe.

Picture from skynews

The photo was taken at the European La Silla Observatory in Chile using a special camera attached to a telescope. The Helix is a sun-like star and is in its final explosion stage before it retires into a white dwarf.

For more, go to my other blog post, The Eye of God, and listen to the Bette Midler's Song "From a Distance" while enjoying the picture. Yes I know that the Bette Midler song is not spiritual per say, but the song does fit well with the picture don't you think.
