Daily Pictures

The heavens keep telling the wonders of God,
and the skies declare what He has done.

Each day informs the following day;
each night announces to the next.

They don't speak a word,
and there is never a sound of a voice.

Yet their message reaches all the earth,
and it travels around the world.    
Psalms 19: 1-4 (Contemporary English Version - The Promise)

There are 200-400 billion stars in the Milky Way.
