Celestial beings

A total lunar eclipse will take place today (Saturday) in the early evening (in the US). In some parts of the world, the moon will be in eclipse when it rises. Maybe the weather will clear enough so that we can see it.

But most exciting are the new photos of Saturn and its rings received from the Cassini spacecraft. Taken at acute angles from above and below the planet, the images are stunning, magnificent, and fill me with quiet awe…

The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science.

When I admire the wonder of a sunset or the beauty of the moon, my soul expands in worship of the Creator.
