To be fair, the Helix Nebula is probably brownish and ugly. When it comes to space photography these are not what they actually look like. These are composites of X-Ray, Infrared, and ultraviolet wavelengths assigned arbitrary colors and put to a picture for the public to consume and scientist to study (the color input makes it easy to figure out some thing about the object in space.)

So no, God is not blue-eyed. It's probably black (due to all that space), brown, and grey. Also, not god.

Here's a good visible light vs. infrared comparison...

Even the visible light images are only a representation of what it would look like if you could see it from pretty close up. If you looked at it through a telescope it would probably just look white, as your eyes simply wouldn't be receiving enough photons from that distance to distinguish colors.
