I thought it was very fitting for Easter week. Absolutely amazing picture. It always cracks me up how the universe screams out in so many ways the message of the Cross. It would be hard to paint a crown as perfect as this galaxy made it appear. I think the biggest thing that makes me smile about this picture is not just the crown part, but how pure white the light is in the middle of this pic.
