Flying over Kansas on Wednesday, I caught an optical phenomenon that I had never seen before: a glory.
From Wikipedia: The glory consists of one or more concentric, successively dimmer rings, each of which is red on the outside and bluish towards the center. The effect is believed to happen due to classical wave tunneling, when light nearby a droplet tunnels through air inside the droplet and, in the case of a glory, is emitted backwards due to resonance effects.
Though the “glory” effect may have a scientific basis, I believe that all creation bears the mark of THE Creator, thus helping us see glimpses of His glory.
11 Be exalted above the heavens, O God; Let Your glory be above all the earth. Psalm 57:11 (NASB)
May your New Year be truly glorious!
