I cannot imagine infinity … but this helps.



Florida State University, in Tallahassee, Florida has put up an interesting page. It begins as a view of the Milky Way Galaxy viewed from a distance of 10 million light years and then zooms in toward Earth in powers of ten. From 10 million, to one million, to 100,000 light years and then it finally reaches a large oak tree.

Once you click on the site, the software does all the work. Sit back and imagine how perfect our universe is. Click on AUTO at the end and review the process in reverse. This gives one even more understanding and appreciation of the immensity and the wonder of God and His universe.

Now, don't you feel important! Tip o' the hat to EllDee!
