Pic of the Day

An appropriate pic for Sunday — a day when Christians worship and contemplate on the most awesome Creator God.
Truly, we worship You, we give You thanks, we praise You for Your glory!

M66 galaxy: 100,000 light-years across & 35 million light-years away.


Hubble, the space telescope, has snapped a spectacular view of M66, a galaxy about 35 million light-years away from Earth, in the constellation Leo.
Together with M65 and NGC 3628, M66 is one-third of the Leo Triplet, a trio of interacting spiral galaxies. M66 is a galaxy with unusual asymmetric spiral arms, most likely caused by the gravitational pull of the other two members of the trio.
M66 is the largest of the Leo Triplet, at about 100,000 light-years across!

Well since I didn’t get any recommendations for the Red Queen, I went ahead with my instincts on this one. Here’s the Red Queeny in all her glory.

She fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down.

muffin,
And when she hit the ground, the whole forest of ugly trees then fell on her.
