NASA Posts Thousands of Images from the WISE Telescope

Every now and then something catches my eye that is so incredible I can’t possibly keep it to myself.  Recently, NASA began posting thousands of images from its Wide-Field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) telescope, launched on December 14, 2009.  The mission is now terminated and WISE has fired off its last shots although NASA has released enough deep space photographs to leave me breathless for years.  Here are some quick links to learn about the mission and a sampling of the gallery:

1 O LORD, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!

You have set your glory
above the heavens…

(Psalm 8:1)
