The Space Window Stained Glass is located on the south side of the Washington National Cathedral. It has a much darker hue than most of the stained glass in the cathedral, as it is constructed from a lunar rock along with glass of very deep shades of blue, red and green.
The picture above was taken on a day when the window was brightly lit by direct sunlight. The red is clear and bright, and the heavens of emerald green on the right shine from the darkness. The bright sunlight also gives some of the edging pieces made of yellow and red glass glow like neon lights.

The words at the bottom in green glass read: “Is not God in the height of Heaven?”
The fragment of moon rock is located in the center of the large red disk.
