The unfolding universe’s eye candy

I wrote sometime back about a dream that I’ve had about stars in the night sky so close that you could feasibly touch them with a large enough ladder. This is about as close to that dream as I think will ever be photographed.

Also, while I’m not one to pull a Chicken Little (and I avoid doing so because I have at least a few friends and family who are prone to hysterics), this is a great animation (though you might wish to ignore the sound, unless you speak Japanese). Meteor, meet Earth. Earth, meet Doom. Milky Way, meet new planetstar.
