"Hand of God" Spotted on Space TelescopeSome astronomers call it “God’s Hand.” Others say it looks like the gaping mouth of a gigantic celestial creature. Featured in a new image taken by the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope, a small cloud of gas and dust dubbed CG4 is nothing short of stunning. Just check it out below. The image of the so-called “cometary globule” — which lies some 1,300 light years from Earth — shows a close-up of the space cloud’s head, and was released by ESO on Jan. 28. Although the globule shines bright in the image, it’s a faint object in reality and, therefore, difficult to detect. The head of CG4 is around 1.5 light-years in diameter, while its tail is about eight light-years long — that’s so big that it basically dwarfs our entire solar system, according to Discovery News. Astronomers hope to study more cometary globules — like CG4 — to solve the mystery of why they have their distinct comet-like shapes. Huff Post Science
