I just love astronomy. I’m sure it’s the childhood geek in me just screaming to get out and fly in a spaceship to planet where the plants can talk.
But whenever I get the chance to see something truly spectacular, something that truly takes the imagination away, and makes me look at the real majesty of our universe head on, I always lose my breath. I will not have an opportunity to see this again in my lifetime, and that makes it all the more special.
So as you take a look at this video of the transit of Venus, remember that is another freakin planet, just slightly smaller than our own. It’s a mighty big universe out there, and God’s game of celestial pinball reminds me so clearly of just how big God is, and how small I am.
