One of nebulas named by #NASA Is #Rosette #Nebula.
A nebula (Latin for "fog"; pl. nebulae, nebulæ, or nebulas) is an interstellar cloud of dust, hydrogen, helium and other ionized gases. Originally, nebula was a name for any diffuse astronomical object, including galaxies beyond the Milky Way. The Andromeda Galaxy, for instance, was once referred to as the Andromeda Nebula (and spiral galaxies in general as "spiral nebulae") before the true nature of galaxies was confirmed in the early 20th century by Vesto Slipher, Edwin Hubble and others.(1)
1.400 years ago, before NASA named it and discovered it, Qur’an mentioned one of this Nebula firstly in Surah Ar-Rahman verse 37.
فَإِذَا انشَقَّتِ السَّمَاءُ فَكَانَتْ وَرْدَةً كَالدِّهَانِ
Then when the heaven is rent asunder, and it becomes rosy or red like red-oil, or red hide. 〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰
Yes, Wardah وَرْدَةً = Rosy = Rose, Red Rose
How did Prophet Muhammad ﷺ who lived in the desert knew this Rosette Nebula
while he had no Technology as NASA ?
