This absolutely gorgeous picture is composite of three different pictures, of “Helix Nebula” and color enhanced. Affectionatly known as “The Eye of God” this composite is so well done, really beautiful work of art: both human and divine, and as art, just purely divine. The beauty we have in the sea below and the cosmos above that we have to fly and dive to see!
The picture is of the beautiful Helix Nebula, which is a star at the end of it’s life cycle. IT is what our own sun will look like one day a few millenia from now. It is thought to be visible only once every 3,000 years, but it has always been there and always is visible, and that is a lovely thing: we have been “gazed upon” always and forever.. Its a beautiful universe however you look at it.
