Pillars of Creation - Hubble Telescope

Pillars of Creation - Hubble Telescope

This photo, Pillars of Creation, was, I believe, taken by the Hubble Telescope within a year or two of its launch. I have always been an astronomy hobbyist, but I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this! It made me realize how much out there exists beyond our knowledge and imagination and how much there is to see and discover! We are not just of this world but of the universe and beyond. We must realize that we will never know all and that our visions must focus on and accept the infinite.
