I was sent these pictures in an email recently and hope it isn’t wrong for me to post them on here. They are very cool and make one feel very small.
Antares is the 15th brightest star in the sky.
It is more than 1000 light years away.
Below is a close up of one of the darkest regions of the photo above.
I LOVE this kind of stuff. Very big. Very cool.
In the email there was also some silly comments about keeping your life in perspective, and when you think your problems are too big remember how small they really are in the universe.
Ummmm, excuse me. My problems are big to me no matter how big Antares is, thank you very much. Seeing some cool pictures about space doesn’t change how hard it is to continue my day when things are yucky.
Can you tell I’m not a cushy person??? :)
