This large yet fragile sphere covered in a tapestry of blues and greens, browns, and shades of white, is the planet we call home. While over 196.9 million square surface miles, the earth is small in comparison to the solar system it resides in. With the sun over 92.96 million miles away and the last planet about 2.7 billion miles, our local solar system seems huge. Yet even it is small when considered next to our galaxy the Milky Way and there are billions of galaxies in the known universe with scientists discovering more each day! To date, the known universe encompasses two trillion galaxies, which include 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 stars and cover 93 billion light years of space. And that’s just the known universe! We have not yet discovered the edge of space or the end of God’s immense creation.
