A rare sunflower galaxy was photographed by the Hubble Telescope. The stars in its spiral resemble the seeds at the center of a sunflower.

The images from the Hubble Telescope show what appears to be a sunflower arrangement. It is indeed breathtakingly beautiful. The seeds of stars at the center of the galaxy cluster seem to radiate outwards. The vision is one of mystic bliss and existential ecstasy. It might just be a remnant from the earlier stages of the universe we inhabit.

A rare sign of what the universe holds in store for those curious about it, the sunflower galaxy is so charming and enchanting that it can hardly be described in words. You have to see it for yourself in order to experience the pleasure of something so pleasant. 

The stars upon stars are very haunting and they touch your core instincts. The power and mystery at the heart of the galaxy probably has a fuel source. That is because it ejects almost 860 stars a year.

Extremely hot temperatures were recorded at the center of this amazing and amusing galaxy. Ths Spitzer’s infrared camera caught this fact. The discovery of this sunflower galaxy of sorts was recorded in an astronomical and scientific journal.  

The Hubble and Spitzer Space Telescopes came in handy in the discovery. They are indeed a great asset for NASA. Known as Messier 63, the sunflower galaxy is a salient and sophisticated star cluster that would easily comprise everyone’s bucket list of things to see before they die.

A spiral and patchwork of stars is visible in this drop dead gorgeous example of aesthetic astronomy. It almost shows the mirror to atheists that only a grand master artist such as God could have created such an immense work of art. Human creativity pales in comparison to these divine designs.   

There are so many other examples of beautiful and eye-catching images in space. The vast recesses of the cosmos show space to be an endless and infinite frontier. As galaxies, stars and nebulae expand into the distant edges we notice that a time comes when the light from so far away does not reach the scientist’s telescopes.

That is where we are forced to admit our impotence and relegate our self-importance to the rubbish heap. Mother Nature and human nature are poles apart. There is simply no comparison. The forces that created the cosmic condition and life on earth are too deep to be fathomed by puny man.
