"The Eye of God" Picture From Space by the Hubble Telescope-Truth!

 

 

 

Summary of the eRumor
A beautiful picture of a nebula said to have been taken by NASA and the space-based Hubbell telescope.  The eRumor says the scientists call it "The Eye of God."
 

The Truth
In doing research on this story, we found that there are numerous pictures of space objects that are nicknamed "The Eye of God."

According to the Hubbel Telescope site, this particular picture if of the HELIX NEBULA, which is about 650 light years from earth. It is said to be the nearest planetary nebulae to earth.

A planetary nebula is gas around what used to be a star much like our sun.

The photograph is not just from the Hubble telescope, but is a composite of data from the Hubble telescope and from Kitt Peak in Tucson, Arizona.
