I dont know if anyone has heard of this beofre, but i recently found it on the web its called "the Eye fo GOD', and its suppose to be a cobo of
pictures taken by NASA. Some people says its a hoax, i'd rather believe that the Universe has beautifull things like this for all to see ...
The phenomenon in the amazing image above is real. The Helix Nebula is a planetary nebula about 650 light-years from Earth. It's a popular target for
astronomers because, due to its relative proximity, it's easily viewed through binoculars or telescope.
However, the image above is not a true "picture" in the technical sense of the word. Rather, it is a computer-generated and enhanced mosaic of nine
separate photographs taken by the Hubble telescope and combined with a wider image captured by the National Science Foundation's telescope at Kitt
Peak National Optical Astronomy Observatory near Tucson, Arizona. It is a scientific representation of what the nebula might look like.
Despite its resemblance to the human eye in this 2-dimensional image, the Helix Nebula is actually a spiral cylinder more than one trillion kilometers
long. Since it points directly toward Earth, it looks like a bubble (or eye) to us, rather than the tube-like structure it really is.
personally i LOVE IT !, and I just felt like sharing it with everyone!!
