The Crab Nebula is an eye-catching nebula and an incredible reminder of God’s creativity and His incredible design.
David Rives in his book Wonders Without Number, quotes,
“The Crab Nebula, also known as Messier 1, was the very first of 110 objects to be catalogued by Charles Messier. Upon first observation, he mistook this nebula for a comet. This colorful nebula is quite bright and fairly easy to spot using a moderately powerful telescope. It is an interesting deep sky object because of its unique history. The Crab Nebula is believed to be the result of a giant supernova or exploding star. The even was witnessed and recorded by Chinese and Arab astronomers on July 4, 1054 A.D. The explosion was so bright, reports indicate that it could be seen for weeks in the daylight hours. Today, scientists tell us that the nebula is expanding at a rate of 1,000 miles per second.”
