Map Of The Universe Poster | YourStarForever

I know it’s part of an online catalog, but I’ve seen this ” map ” of the known universe earlier.

Just think – Our relatively small spark of light with its collection of 8 planets ( originally ** 9 **, thanks to Professor Neil deGrasse Tyson demoting Pluto. 🙂 ) is somewhere in that graphic representation of everything that surrounds us & our class G home star Sol.

I just thought some cosmic perspective would be a good way to start out this New Year.

Happy 2016 to one & all !observable-universe-logarithmic-image-square
