Amateur astronomers sometimes come up with brilliant and beautiful images of the cosmos.

NASA just uploaded an image on their mobile app that took my breath away. Easily one of the most creative, beautiful images of the Milky Way ive seen!





A small crystal ball seems to hold a whole galaxy in this creative snapshot. Of course,the galaxy is our own Milky Way. Its luminous central bulge marked by rifts of interstellar dust spans thousands of light-years. On this long southern hemisphere night it filled dark Chilean skies over Paranal Observatory. The single exposure image did not require a Very Large Telescope, though. Experiments with a digital camera on a tripod and crystal ball perched on a handrail outside the Paranal Residencia produced the evocative, cosmic marble portrait of our home galaxy

Please feel free to post your favorite astro-photography, and have a great weekend.

That was actually the very first thing I thought of.

Same here. Maybe it was the photographer's inspiration?

Wow, very cool!

I like Milky Way photos with Zodiacal light.

You can get crystal spheres and cubes with a laser engraved galaxy inside, but those color photographs are way better.

We are all a part of something much greater than we can comprehend.

Looks cool... I definitely want one!


I think Leonardo da Vinci had a similar ideal with his Salvator Mundi painting, with a crystal ball representing the heavens above.

It also reminds me of the ending of MIB.




What if the aliens are playing a game of marbles with us?
