Wikipedia defines a nebula as:
[...]an interstellar cloud of dust, hydrogen, helium and other ionized gases.
To put it in layman's terms: pretty space clouds.
When you consider how huge these beautiful sights are - that one little speck of light is akin to our sun - it really puts our existence and a lot of our perceived problems into perspective, doesn't it!
Though vast and far away, modern technology has allowed us to see these sights, become space tourists from our desks and marvel at the universe that surrounds us.
Allow yourself to stare in wonder and daydream about what might be occuring somewhere out there, within these pretty space clouds.
Daydream, and be inspired.
This post is dedicated to YOU. Have a Marvellous Monday.
