Christmas Comet Lovejoy

The photo above is not doctored in any way.  This is a photo taken by NASA astronaut Daniel Burbank, commander of the International Space Station on December 21, 2011.  He and fellow astronauts were documenting storms from space when they were surprised be a sudden streak of green across the dark of space.  It came just before the rise of the sun and left everyone on board amazed.

Below is the video they took of such a rare and awesome event.  Once again I am awed by God's amazing creation.

He counts the stars and calls them each by name."  Psalm 147: 4
