Observation of the Universe

 Long before the Voyager space probe or the recent launching of the high-tech Hubble Telescope/Satellite, Professor Barnard, of the famous Lick Observatory had been engaged for many years in the task of photographing the Milky Way galaxy.

He once estimated that his camera would reveal no less than five hundred million stars in the heavens, or rather, that part which he was examining.

What stupendous force it gives to the Psalmist’s saying, “When I consider thy heavens … what is man?”(Ps. 8:3, 4).
