By Phil Callaway | December 11, 2017

Star Struck

By Phil Callaway | November 17, 2017

As a child, I loved lying on my back on warm summer nights and looking up at the stars. The night sky is a perfect canvas for a child’s imagination to scribble on; it sure beats an iPad. Were the stars looking back at me? Could I reach them in a hot air balloon? I imagined cities and civilizations out there, creatures with tentacles and big eyes hurtling toward us in flying saucers. Or perhaps the aliens would be cute and cuddly. Maybe one would land in my backyard and I would keep it as a pet. Sometimes my brothers pointed out constellations. “That big cluster over there is Bert the water buffalo. That long squiggly line with the scoop on the end. That’s the big slipper, I think.” As the years passed, my fascination with the night sky continued to grow. I learned that our humble Milky Way galaxy contains somewhere between 100 and 200 billion stars. And if you leave the Milky Way, you’ll find billions upon billions of galaxies. Smart people say there might be as many as three sextillion stars in the universe (that’s 3 followed by 23 zeros). Our star, the sun, is so big you could barely squeeze 1.3 million Earths inside it. But as stars go, our sun is just a little fellow. The largest star our telescopes have discovered is UY Scuti. If I was to name it, I’d call it YU sohuge. If you wrapped a measuring tape around Scuti, it would have to reach 4.7 billion miles (that’s 7.5 billion kilometers). Scuti is an estimated 21 billion times the volume of our sun. Yet it’s is only a tiny speck on God’s vast tapestry of space. Each morning at breakfast, I read from a little devotional book, a collection of […]
