Merry Christmas! -- Day 25 of the 2012 Hubble Space Telescope Advent Calendar - http://theatln.tc/11r95Sa - The Sombrero galaxy, Messier 104 (M104). The galaxy's hallmark is a brilliant white, bulbous core encircled by the thick dust lanes comprising the spiral structure of the galaxy. As seen from Earth, the galaxy is tilted nearly edge-on. We view it from just six degrees north of its equatorial plane. The galaxy is 50,000 light-years across and is located 28 million light-years from Earth.

"The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament showeth his handiwork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night showeth knowledge. There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world." -Psalm 19:1-4
 
is it real or it is Jules Vernes Imagination ?! I can't believe it - the humans are small and unimportant in this Universe. These pics give us fantasies like Star wars and Hope
 
lets take some billion years flying around.
