WISE Telescope Captures Heart Nebula

WISE Telescope Captures Heart Nebula

A Message from the Heart

Here is a wonderful image of The Heart Nebula a special place in the universe showing and confirming that messages are encoded throughout creation. What I find very special and somewhat intriguing are some of the numbers associated with collecting all the separate image captures required to stitch together a complete picture.  Besides the amazing images of the two hearts which speak of duality and synchronicity, these two themes are evident throughout our lives and are increasing in momentum as we approach the “Zero-Point” of 2012. See this recent post here- (2012 Consciousness Shift- Right Brain vs. Left ) about the heart to better understand where I’m coming from with such a statement.

11:11 a Number with a Message

Getting back on the previous reference to numbers, the significance of the number eleven appearing as a part of the images is I believe not unique. In the article from Wired.com below, you will notice that images are captured every eleven seconds as the WISE, Wide-Field Infrared Survey Explorer orbits that Earth.

Why the eleven seconds? Obviously there must be a scientific and technical reason for this specific time interval.

Regardless of the technical reasons, the number cannot just simply be a coincidence. But wait there is more! Two other instances of the eleven number shows up in the total quantity of individual images needed to complete the marvelous twin heart image. It consists of 1,147 images! This number in and of itself is a very powerful number when viewed in a more esoteric, spiritual way. It is actually the infamous 11:11 number people all over the world have been seeing appear in their lives in various ways.

The 11:11 is arrived by adding the last two digits, 47 together. In numerology, 11 is a power or “master” number and is never added together creating a single digit, 2. Normally this is a common practice in numerology to continually add digits until arriving at a single number. Anyway, the third instance of 11 came through the amount of days it took to capture all of the 1,147 images; yep you guessed it, 11 days! The essence of the 11 number can be surmised as representing the following:

  • Higher ideals
  • Fulfillment
  • Balance
  • Vision
  • Invention
  • Refinement
  • Congruency

One final point on the number 11 as we could go really deep into the subject. The 11 has a vibration frequency of balance. The balance is represented through both male and female aspects as discussed in this post, (link) and the two hearts in the image could very easily represent these two components which make up all humans.

We shall soon see an even faster acceleration of the balancing that is coming upon Earth and all who inhabit this planet so, look up and know your heart forever resonates with all of creation. Be wise and allow your personal power to be solidified and strengthened by way of maintaining a balanced, open heart.

A new mosaic from NASA’s newest infrared observatory captures the Heart and Soul nebulae, so named because of their resemblance to hearts — both the Hallmark-card and the blood-pumping variety.

“One is a Valentine’s Day heart, and the other is a surgical heart that you have in your body,” said Ned Wright of the University of California, Los Angeles, who presented the image May 24 at a meeting of the American Astronomical Society.

Since its launch Dec. 14, 2009, the Wide-Field Infrared Survey Explorer has been circling the Earth in a polar orbit and snapping images every 11 seconds. As of Sunday, it has captured 953,880 frames and mapped about 75 percent of the sky, Wright said.

The new image is stitched together from 1,147 individual frames. The exposure took a total of 3½ hours spread over 11 days in February to complete. The nebulae are located in the constellation Cassiopeia, about 6,000 light-years away from Earth.

The image is color-coded to make sense to human eyes, which are blind in the infrared. Blue and cyan represent the shortest wavelengths WISE is sensitive to — 3.4 and 4.6 micrometers — and highlight places where stars are being born. Green light shows small grains of dust that have been heated by starlight and glow at the 12-micrometer band. The longest wavelength, 22 micrometers, is shown in red, capturing larger dust grains.

The bright spot at the top right of the image is an active star-forming region called W3, which Wright studied with a 4-pixel balloon-borne telescope for his Ph.D. thesis in the 1970s. Wright marveled at the difference between the sketched-out contour map he made then and the glowing portrait captured by WISE.

“It’s been an amazing progress in IR astronomy, with cameras growing by a factor of a million in power in just a few decades,” he said.
