The heavens truly declare the Glory of God. I never cease to be amazed whenever this journey allows me to experience firsthand the beautiful work of an Almighty God! Here is a closer look at the Trifid Nebula (Messier 20). This nebula boasts an emission nebula component (seen as the red color) and a reflection nebula component (seen as the blue color). This beauty, which is located some 5,000 light years away from Earth, is said to be comprised of vast interstellar dust and gas that is actively giving birth to new stars. Wow!
