Like firecrackers lighting up the sky on New Year’s Eve, the majestic spiral arms of this galaxy are alight with new stars being born. The Hubble Space Telescope (@NASAHubble) saw this spiral galaxy, NGC 5559, with spiral arms filled with gas and dust sweeping out around the bright galactic bulge. These arms are a rich environment for star formation, dotted with a festive array of colors including the newborn stars glowing blue as a result of their immensely high temperatures.

NGC 5559 was discovered by astronomer William Herschel in 1785 and lies approximately 240 million light-years away in the northern constellation of Boötes (the herdsman). Credit: ESA/Hubble & NASA

When we look at the galaxy that us 240 million years away, does that mean that we get the image very late and maybe now at the present time this galaxy has completely changed⁉️

For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead so that they are without excuse: Rom 1:20

When you think about it, around all the stars in this galaxy and the other galaxies, revolve many millions of planets, some younger than ours, some much older. On those planets, surely there are civilizations that are both less evolved than ours and others more highly evolved. There has to be other beings out there.

космос, одна мысль о том, что он бесконечен поражает сознание, что же скрывается там - за гранью нашего понимания?
