What a find, Warren...that's absolutely beautiful. Isn't that an incredible experience to have in your life too, months staring at the sky to produce a piece of work like that.

S+F from me!

I posted a thread on this a couple days ago Brilliant 360-Degree Panorama of the Milky Way, but I don't think enough people saw these amazing images, so I would like the Mods to keep this open, and I will simply add my data to this thread.



Origional Article from Wired.com


You can see the entire Milky Way at once in this panorama painstakingly stitched together by French photographers.

Working in the dark, dry highlands of Chile with a Nikon D3 digital camera (50 mm lens open at f5.6), Serge Brunier and Frédéric Tapissier patched together 1,200 photos of the night sky into the composite that you see

We seem to live pretty far away from the center. Almost like some intergalactig hillbillies

Stunning, humbling and awe inspiring. Makes one wonder why we find ourselves so important and significant in the grand scheme of things. This project should definitely help bring the collective human ego into check or at least help us to realize that "we ain't shat, yo!"

Cheers,

Erik

S+F'd by the way!

Each single spec of light we call a star is god... unfathomable in it's immensity, yet so small we only see it as a dot when enlarged for us.

WE are so small by comparison.

Amazing; it seems we are too far from that edge (which we can see straight from here) of our galaxy; just wondering what lies behind us or this edge of the galaxy.

Thanks for sharing it. S & F

My apologies if this seem out of place, but I actually believe this sums it all up in the most humourous, but correct way possible...........

Great pictures only shows how small we are in this universe.

How could anyone believes that we are the ONLY living planet on this universe?

Being smaller than a dust in this universe, sure there should be another alien civilization out there? or should I say.. civilizations !
