Really beautiful picture of the Necklace Nebula...

It's 15,000 light years from us. Can you wrap your brain around a number like that? I really can't, hard as a try. And 15,000 light years is nothing compared to the most distant objects in space. I think they're up to seeing quasars now that are 13.5 billion light years away? That's 13,000,000,000 years of travel for light that's at a speed that would circle the entire earth 7 times in one second. That's a really really really long way away. Granted - not as far as a coin can roll away from you when dropped but still.
