The #SwordOfOrion - The Orion constellation is noticeable for three medium-bright stars in a short, straight row. These stars represent Orion’s Belt. If you look closely, you’ll notice a curved line of stars “hanging” from the three Belt stars. These stars represent Orion’s Sword. Look for the Orion Nebula about midway down in the Sword of Orion, otherwise known as M42, a stellar nursery where new stars are being born.

Some people, in order to discover God, read books. But there is a great book: the very appearance of created things. Look above you! Look below you! ~ Augustine of Hippo ~

Dark, cold & whipped by supersonic winds, Neptune is a hydrogen & helium gas giant in our solar system. Over 30 times as far from the sun as Earth, it takes almost 165 Earth years to orbit our sun. In 2011, Neptune completed its first orbit since its discovery in 1846. On Neptune, one "day" (time it takes to rotate once on its axis) takes 16 hours. It makes a complete orbit @ the sun in 165 Earth years. It has 13 moons & 6 rings. Photo: the "sideways" planet with vertically orbiting rings <3
