Look Into the Galaxy & Be Amazed at What You Will Find


Never been to space, eh? Do these photos make you want to go or at least have an aha moment, recognizing how small we are in this solar system?  Just when you begin to think there’s one galaxy, perhaps this will make you think about what’s really out there.  The below image captures the stars’ nightly swirl while auroras set the horizon aglow over Australia’s Mornington Peninsula. These were taken from a much larger story on amazing top space photos from National Geographic who looked at many and chose their favorites. Below are our three favorites from their pick and you can find the entire article here. (a must read). Marvel away.
