Creepin' Me Out!

Who's seen this it their e-mail box?The sun below is a speck - one megapixel - before the white speck.
THIS IS A HUBBLE TELESCOPE ULTRA DEEP FIELD INFRARED VIEW OF COUNTLESS 'ENTIRE' GALAXIES BILLIONS OF LIGHT-YEARS AWAY.

BELOW IS A CLOSE UP OF ONE OF THE DARKEST REGIONS OF THE PHOTO ABOVE

Nothing creeps me out like images of space! I know it's beautiful in a Godly sense and definitely wonderous and amazing. Yet... creepy!

Am I the only one?

Not creeped out---filled with awe. I haven't seen it in my inbox, but we looked it up last year while studying astronomy and we could see Antares in the night sky. HUGE!

Amazing! No, I'm not creeped out, but my family things I'm crazy because I NEVER want to go to space. They all think it would be cool. I just want to stay right here on earth!!
Those weren't in my inbox, but I wish they were because they're cool images.

yeah, more awe than creep but it is strange to think about just what is out there

okay! Y'all don't need to rub it in! I AM the only one!!

I can't even look through a telescope/binoculars at the moon hardly. It just... creeps me out! I don't know how else to describe it.

No YOU ARE NOT the only one. I am super skeebed out by pictures of outside space. Just don't even GO there, I say. Who cares? I don't even want to KNOW of any of the creepy stuff out there. It's way too vast and spooky. I'm really more of a homebody, I guess.

Guess there are three of us then. The only three people on earth who are creeped out by thinking too much about outer space - Laura the Crazy Mama, you, and ME! It's only slightly less creepy to me to go the other direction and ponder the mysteries of the microscopic world. Are you with me on that one too? :D
