The awe factor

Yesterday I was at (in)courage, sharing a few simple thoughts about something huge: the enormity of creation. From the post:

“Last month, I Instagrammed the photo above. I was in Australia, and the sun was rising to a new day in the land Down Under. Soon after, my husband Kyle commented: “That must be part of the same sunset I’m seeing right now!”

“I shivered. He was watching the sun being pulled down our global orb over in Oregon, and I was watching the same star being stretched up on the other side. 15 time zones away, and I was starting a new day when his day was ending back in time. It kinda made my brain explode.”

What’s the most spectacular piece of creation you’ve ever seen? Come over and share with me, and also watch a three-minute video that will make your head spin.
