Can we also talk about how mind-blowing this shit is?
Like - the fact that each dot of light is a star most likely brighter than our sun. The fact that each of these is a completely different galaxy somewhere in space - and the fact that these are photographs. Not artistic renderings, actual photos of what the universe LOOKS LIKE.
My brain cannot handle the awesomeness of our universe sometimes.
