Wow!! Beautiful Universe is right. And to think, some would rather deny a wonderful, exciting natural explanation of that beauty in favor of a dull, dry (not to mention empirically false) religious one.

Absolutely beautiful pictures! Every time I see pictures like this I wish I knew more about astrophysics. I may need to pick up a book tomorrow and gain some knowledge. Like a Star @ heaven Thanks for sharing! Like a Star @ heaven

Stunning pictures - we sure live in an amazing universe.

I remember one time, at a friend's remote cabin up north, in the middle of the winter, on a clear night, far away from any significant light source, I walked out some way on the ice of the lake next to the cabin, to get to a water hole made on the ice to retrieve water for the Sauna. I happened to look up, and was stunned - as a city dweller I simply had never seen the sky without significant light pollution.

I must have stood there for at least ten minutes, just craning my neck and watching the sky in awe, with it's amazing abundance of stars and remarkable beauty. Shocked

It was -20 C outside, but I could not be bothered about the cold, it was that amazing. So if you ever happen to be out on a clear night, in the middle of nowhere... look up and feel the chills down your spine.

Wow.

Ironically, my first words on seeing this picture: "Jesus Christ, look at all those galaxies!"

While I was viewing I just keep thinking of the Monty Python song about the universe, and yeah, it definitely makes you insignificant on an individual scale, but it's so damned cool
