Psalmi 19  (click for English)

(Către mai marele cîntăreţilor. Un psalm al lui David.) Cerurile spun slava lui Dumnezeu, şi întinderea lor vesteşte lucrarea mînilor Lui.

2O zi istoriseşte alteia acest lucru, o noapte dă de ştire alteia despre el.

3Şi aceasta, fără vorbe, fără cuvinte, al căror sunet să fie auzit:

4dar răsunetul lor străbate tot pămîntul, şi glasul lor merge pînă la marginile lumii. În ceruri El a întins un cort soarelui.

5Şi soarele, ca un mire, care iese din odaia lui de nuntă, se aruncă în drumul lui cu bucuria unui viteaz:

6răsare la un capăt al cerurilor, şi îşi isprăveşte drumul la celalt capăt; nimic nu se ascunde de căldura lui.

7Legea Domnului este desăvîrşită, şi înviorează sufletul; mărturia Domnului este adevărată şi dă înţelepciune celui neştiutor.

8Orînduirile Domnului sînt fără prihană, şi veselesc inima; poruncile Domnului sînt curate şi luminează ochii.

9Frica de Domnul este curată, şi ţine pe vecie; judecăţile Domnului sînt adevărate, toate sînt drepte.

10Ele sînt mai de preţ decît aurul, decît mult aur curat; sînt mai dulci decît mierea, decît picurul din faguri.

11Robul Tău primeşte şi el învăţătura dela ele; pentru cine le păzeşte, răsplata este mare.

12Cine îşi cunoaşte greşelile făcute din neştiinţă? Iartă-mi greşelile pe cari nu le cunosc!

13Păzeşte de asemenea pe robul Tău de mîndrie, ca să nu stăpînească ea peste mine! Atunci voi fi fără prihană, nevinovat de păcate mari.

14Primeşte cu bunăvoinţă cuvintele gurii mele, şi cugetele inimii mele, Doamne, Stînca mea şi Izbăvitorul meu!

Awesome Astronomy Images of God’s Universe (APOD 1995 series + 1969 moon landing)

The Trifid Nebula –  Credit: Hopkins Observatory, Karen Gloria

Explanation: The vivid blue and violet colors present in the Trifid Nebula result from the abundance of young stars there. The light from young massive stars is quite blue and has the ability to remove electrons from surrounding gas. When these electrons re-combine with the gas, radiation rich in blue and violet light is emitted. Some of the nebula’s light also results from the reflection of star light off of extremely small carbon specks known as ‘dust’. This object is known to astronomers as M20 – the twentieth object on Charles Messier’s list of diffuse sky objects. This image was taken with a 6-inch refracting telescope. Many images of Messier objects can be found in The Electronic Universe Project’s The Galaxy Gallery: Messier Objects.

M31: The Andromeda Galaxy

Explanation: Andromeda is the nearest major galaxy to our own Milky Way Galaxy. Our Galaxy is thought to look much like Andromeda. Together these two galaxies dominate the Local Group of galaxies. The diffuse light from Andromeda is caused by the hundreds of billions of stars that compose it. The several distinct stars that surround Andromeda’s image are actually stars in our Galaxy that are well in front of the background object. Andromeda is frequently referred to as M31 since it is the 31st object on Messier’s list of diffuse sky objects. M31 is so distant it takes about 2 million years for light to reach us from there.

Earth’s Moon, A Familiar Face
Credit: Clementine, BMDO, NRL, LLNL

Explanation: The  mosaic of the Earth’s Moon was compiled from photos taken by the spacecraft Clementine in 1994. This image represents the side of the Moon familiar to Earth dwellers. The Moon revolves around the Earth about once every 28 days. Since its rate of rotation about its axis is also once in 28 days, it always keeps the same face toward the Earth. As the Moon travels around its orbit, the Earth based view of the half of the Moon that faces the Sun changes causing the regular monthly progression of Lunar phases. Humans first crashed a spacecraft into the Moon in 1959, but the first humans to reach the Moon landed in 1969. There are now golf balls on the Moon.

The Far Side
Credit: The Soviet Lunar Program

Explanation: This historic picture was humanity’s first glimpse of the far side of the Moon. It was taken by the Soviet spacecraft Luna 3 in October of 1959. Luna 3 followed closely on the heels of another Soviet probe, Luna 2, which had become the first spacecraft to impact the Moon on September 13th of that same year.

Why does the Moon have a far side? Gravitational tidal forces within the Earth-Moon system have synchronized the Moon’s period of rotation around its axis with its orbital period at about 28 days. So, as the Moon moves around its orbit its rotation exactly compensates, keeping the same face toward the Earth.

Standing on the Moon

Explanation: Pictured, the second person to walk on the Moon: Edwin „Buzz” Aldrin. During this Apollo 11 mission, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed on the Moon while Michael Collins circled in the Command Module above. The lunar team erected a plaque on the surface that reads: HERE MEN FROM THE PLANET EARTH, FIRST SET FOOT UPON THE MOON JULY 1969 A.D., WE CAME IN PEACE FOR ALL MANKIND. The Apollo missions demonstrated that it is possible to land humans on the Moon and return them safely.

One Small Step
Credit: NASA, Kennedy Space Center, Neil Armstrong

Explanation: On July 20th, 1969, a human first set foot on the Moon. Pictured above is the first lunar footprint. The footprint and distinction of the first person to walk on the Moon belong to Neil Armstrong. It has been estimated that one billion people world-wide watched Armstrong’s first step – making the live transmission from a camera mounted on the lunar lander the highest rated television show ever. Upon setting foot on the moon, Armstrong said: „That’s one small step for (a) man, one giant leap for mankind.” The Apollo missions to the Moon have been described as the result of the greatest technological mobilization the world has known.

The video of the very first moon landing of the apollo 11 mission in 1969! Neil Armstrong was the first man to set foot on the moon with his now legenday words „One small step for man, a giant leap for mankind.” This is a truly amazing video from 1969!!!

In awe of creation – The size and scale of our world

Creation Calls – Brian Doerkson (One of my favorite all time songs)

Creation Calls  by Brian Doerksen
I have felt the wind blow,
Whispering your name
I have seen your tears fall,
When I watch the rain.
How could I say there is no God?
When all around creation calls!!
A singing bird, a mighty tree,
The vast expanse of open sea
(Musical interlude)
Gazing at a bird in flight,
Soaring through the air.
Lying down beneath the stars,
I feel your presence there.
I love to stand at ocean shore
And feel the thundering breakers roar,
To walk through golden fields of grain
With endless bloom horizons fray.
Listening to a river run,
Watering the Earth.
Fragrance of a rose in bloom,
A newborns cry at birth.
I love to stand at ocean shore
And feel the thundering breakers roar,
To walk through golden fields of grain
With endless bloom horizons fray
I believe
I believe
I believe
I believe
I believe
I believe just like a child
(Choir I believe..)
I believe

Recalling the famous Apollo-era pictures of Earth taken by lunar astronauts, this digital image is a spectacular portrait of the Western Hemisphere at the time of one of the strongest hurricanes ever observed in the Eastern Pacific.

This combination of science, engineering and artistry was generated by researchers in the Laboratory for Atmospheres at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, MD, using data from three different Earth-observing satellite instruments.

Earth at night / Continentele  (sursa pozei suprapusa prin computer de NASA). Explanation: This is what the Earth looks like at night. The  image below is actually a composite of hundreds of pictures made by the orbiting DMSP satellites.

Pacific NW—Washington, Vancouver Island

This cloudless view of northwestern Washington and southeastern British Columbia is a study in varied land-use patterns: the forested Olympic Peninsula and Cascade Range contrast with the wheatlands of the drier east side of the mountains. The checkerboard pattern of clearcut forest is accented by snow in the range east of Seattle. Major cities and seaports of the Pacific Northwest—Seattle, Tacoma and Vancouver—take advantage of the deep, sheltered channels.

The natural beauty and safe harbors of the region are products of tectonic processes acting on the western margin of North America. Mt. Rainier and Mt. Baker are just two in a line of recently active volcanoes extending from the Coast Mountains of British Columbia to Mt. Shasta in northern California. Strong earthquakes are also frequent, as exemplified by the Nisqually quake (magnitude Mw 6.8) of February 28, 2001, which rocked Tacoma, Seattle and the surrounding area.

Astronaut photograph ISS004-E-10921 was taken by the crew of the International Space Station on April 29, 2002.

The whole earth is filled with awe at your wonders…

Psalm 65:8

Four Corners, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado and Utah.

The Four Corners is so called because it is the point at which the corners of four states meet neatly at the sames pot. The states are: Utah in the northwest, Colorado in the northeast,New Mexico in the southeast, and Arizona in the southwest.

Also of interest is the Colorado River, which starts in Colorado and flows to the southwest, where it crosses the US border into Mexico to empty into the Gulf of California. While on its course south, the Colorado flows through the Glen Canyon in southern Utah, the Grand Canyon in northeastern Arizona, and Lake Mead on the Nevada-Arizona border. These three features provide some of the most breathtaking natural attractions in the United States.
