Wow. This is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. I’m not a huge fan of astronomy, but these photographs are just mind-blowing. Courtesy of Stefan Seip, IT consultant by day and intrepid astronomy photog by night.
I have always lived in huge, over-populated cities, so I consider myself lucky when I get a glimpse of a few stars at night. Once when I was a kid, we were coming back from Petra a little past midnight, and the stars filled the sky. It was the first and last time I ever see a real night sky.
