Have you ever sat and contemplated the vastness of the universe?
As you well know, we earthlings inhabit a single planet that orbits a single star.
But consider this…
There are billions of stars just in our own Milky Way galaxy – and there are billions of other galaxies in the universe.
By anyone’s calculation, that adds up to a lot of stars.
Of course we can only see a tiny fraction of those stars with our naked eyes from our vantage point on the Earth’s surface, but we can see vastly more of them via the magic of time-lapse photography.
The fascinating time-lapse video featured below shows a tiny portion of our Milky Way galaxy, and I find those views to be absolutely breathtaking. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
While you’re watching the video be sure to keep in mind that all the stars you’re seeing probably don’t even equate to a drop of water in all the Earth’s oceans compared to the total number of stars in the universe.
And now, I invite you to watch and enjoy…
Note: As always, you can watch the video at full screen by clicking the “square” icon in the lower-right corner of the video after it begins playing. And as you can imagine, this video really must be viewed at full screen in order to fully enjoy it.
