Taken Under the ‘Wing’ of the Small Magellanic Cloud
The tip of the “wing” of the Small Magellanic Cloud galaxy is dazzling in this new view from NASA’s Great Observatories. The Small Magellanic Cloud, or SMC, is a small galaxy about 200,000 light-years way that orbits our own Milky Way spiral galaxy.
The SMC is one of the Milky Way’s closest galactic neighbors. Even though it is a small, or so-called dwarf galaxy, the SMC is so bright that it is visible to the unaided eye from the Southern Hemisphere and near the equator. Many navigators, including Ferdinand Magellan who lends his name to the SMC, used it to help find their way across the oceans.
The spiral galaxy seen in the lower corner is actually behind this nebula. Other distant galaxies located hundreds of millions of light-years or more away can be seen sprinkled around the edge of the image.

We’re on Earth with more than 7 billion other humans. And Earth is only one planet out of the 8 just in this galaxy. And there are over 200 billion known galaxies in the observable universe. And the universe is infinite. Meaning it goes on forever. So it goes on forever with more than we even know.

But yet out of everything in the whole infinite universe, you’re still what I love most. You’re still all I can ever think about.

My love for you is infinite, it goes on forever

    Do not try to be pretty. You weren’t meant to be pretty; you were meant to burn down the earth and graffiti the sky. Don’t let anyone ever simplify you to just “pretty.”
    I love you, that means I’m not just here for the pretty parts. I’m here no matter what.
