Star Size Comparison

Yesterday we looked at the Milky Way.

And it looked like a bazillion (Is there such a word?) -- well more than a bazillion tiny bright dots -- the stars, planets, nebulae, etc.

But, did you click through to the link at the bottom of the last link to see the next thing that NASA had to show us?

Well, if you did, then you know what you are being introduced to now.

And that is a brief 2 minute 34 second video of a Star size comparison.

We all know about the sun, our big star, pictured here, but it is small compared to most stars.

Those tiny dots of light in the sky (stars, planets, nebulae, etc.) are not tiny at all;  this video will give you and idea of how BIG they really are. 

As you watch this video ask yourself, "Did this happen by chance? Or is the Bible true when it says in Genesis 1: 14-19 that on Day Four He made … the STARS…"

1:14  kjv And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: 15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. 16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: He made the stars also. 17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, 18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. 19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

So think on those things as you view this video (oh, and one more thing, there is an ad that comes up at the bottom of the video. Click the X to close it.)

OK, with that said, at long last  HERE'S THE LINK
