Size Does Matter

It’s all a matter of perspective.

This kind of puts things into perspective, doesn’t it? But beyond our sun, it’s a really big universe.

Antares is the 15th brightest star in the sky. It is more than 1,000 light years away. Now, tell me, how big are you…really?

Now, try to wrap your mind around this. This is a Hubble telescope ultra-deep field infrared view of countless entire galaxies billions of light years away.

Below is a close-up of one of the darkest regions of the above photo.

Even at max magnification, there are entire galaxies billions of light years away. Now, how big do you feel?
