I love time lapse videos of the stars. Really, only one word in the English language can adequately describe them: sublime.

Here are two interesting videos. The first is a more ‘geocentric’ video…

From Bad Astronomy:

Don’t ever forget: we live on a tilted spinning ball revolving around a star that’s orbiting the center of the Milky Way galaxy that’s on the outskirts of the Virgo galaxy cluster that’s part of the Local Supercluster that’s in an expanding Universe that not only gets bigger every second but gets bigger faster every second.

That’s a lot to handle, I know… but it’s real, and it’s true, and it’s awesome.

Yes, it is awesome…
