Eagle Nebula (M16): Hubble Images & Pillars of Creation

The Pillars of Creation are located in the Eagle Nebula (M16). In 1995, the world was astounded by the beautiful Hubble Space Telescope images of the Eagle Nebula, a cloud of interstellar gas and dust 7,000 light-years from Earth.


 the “Pillars of Creation.” The three columns contain the materials for building new stars, and stretch four light-years out into space. Newborn stars outside of the famous Hubble image are responsible for sculpting the pillars, using ultraviolet light to burn away some of the gas within the clouds.


In 2010, images of the pillars taken by NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory peered inside the pillars to reveal only a handful of x-ray sources. Because new stars are supposed to be a hot bed of x-ray activity, scientists speculated that the star-forming days of the pillars were coming to an end.

The Pillars of Creation are  pillars of STAR making material.

Are these the HANDS of God?

Is this the MATERIAL that our Lord used to CREATE the Universe?

We can only SPECULATE what we know at this time about the PILLARS of CREATION
