Twinkle Twinkle little star
Stars look little from our view point on Earth ...
Our nearest star, the Sun, is about 1,000,000 times the volume of Earth.
Yet a comparison of different stars shows that our Sun is small.
Canis Majoris, the biggest known star and the largest object in the known Universe, can be translated as "the big dog". If the Earth were the size of a golf ball, the diameter of this star would be about the same as the height of Everest, which is almost 6 miles!
Psalm 33:6 "By the word of the LORD were the heavens made, their starry host by the breath of his mouth."
Psalm 19:1 "The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands."
There are some amazing images of the Universe taken by the Hubble space telescope.
God is incredible - the heavens (the Universe) declares it. The "known universe" is getting bigger all the time, especially with the help of the Hubble telescope. It is almost as if God is just waiting for us to build bigger and better telescopes to see more and more of His creation.
Isaiah 40:22,25 "He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth, and its people are like grasshoppers. He stretches out the heavens like a canopy, and spreads them out like a tent to live in." "To whom will you compare me? Or who is my equal?" says the Holy One."
Psalm 8:3- 4 "When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him?"
