Color Shock in the Heavens

There are nights of observing when we actually look to be blown away. It had been a hard few days as Linda had just finished chemo. This particular evening she was weak but alert, so I said, “Let me set up a telescope for you and pump some colorful images so we can record them together.” She got excited. Mars was bright red-orange in the eastern skies; the blue-green eskimo nebula was in the high western skies. For two hours we pumped the video image to the living room, talked, and worked together….finishing thankful for His wondrous work in the heavens as well as as our personal opportunity to observe together with Him. The picture shows Linda’s rendition to the planetary nebula. However, follow the link to go to the whole story, a picture from the sessions, and 3 more sketches.


About rolandlinda3

We avidly enjoy the observation of God's creation in terms of stars, the moon, and earthly things. We teach others to observe what He has made. Part of the outreach and work is to maintain a site: [or use the new address]. This site has been changed to include this blog along with three other inspirational blogs. We invite you to take a look and follow us there. Whether here or at the new site, our purpose is unchanged. We aim to share the love of Jesus Christ, who has graciously kept us and made us excited about seeing what he has made. Our faith is a walking faith, so faith and works, as much as we are able, are married together.
