What do we know about Heaven?

People looked to Heaven for their sustenance (manna), cried out towards Heaven in times of pain, and celebrated towards Heaven in times of joy. We are called to first seek the Kingdom of God and are told by Jesus that the Kingdom of Heaven is near. One of my favorite lines in all of scripture is,"Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will be Done, On Earth as it is in Heaven". But, honesty compels me to admit, I do not know much about heaven (other than various verses in Revelation).

A long time has passed since I asked a question of the readers of our blog: How much do we know about Heaven? And, what is the source of our knowledge? Do we need to know what Heaven looks like, or, do we need to better understand Jesus (because he is the visible image of the invisible God)?
