For the FIRST TIME, you will now be able to view photos of other galactic wonders. These photos were not provided by NASA, the European Space Agency, nor any other ‘terrestrial’ space agency. Of particular interest will be the photo depicting a galaxy as a ‘blue spiral’. If that photo seems familiar (which it may appear to some), it should -- it is the ‘Milky Way’, our home galaxy, as seen from a distance of ’10 light years’.
Certainly, that photo alone was not taken by the Hubble telescope, nor by any other probe or technology we currently have available.

It's utter garbage, and his website slowed my computer to a crawl for several minutes. 10 light years? What's he smoking? You know what our galaxy would look like at a distance of "10 light years"? This:
Yes, it would basically look exactly the way it does to us here on earth; 10 light years is nothing in galactic terms. If you went 10 light years out of the plane of the milkyway your perspective shift would be nill.
The region pictured here is immense, with a horizontal span of 890 light-years and a vertical span of 640 light-years. Earth is located 26,000 light-years away, out in one of the Milky Way's spiral arms. Though most of the objects seen in this image are located at the galactic center, the features above and below the galactic plane tend to lie closer to Earth.
