Skysurvey.org is the largest ever true color all-sky photograph.  5 kilopixel panorama of 37,440 exposures from 2 hemispheres.  This is what you’d see if the Earth suddenly became transparent and the sky were 3000 times brighter.  I love how strongly you can perceive the disc of the Milky Way; we’re at the outer edge so there’s a lot of stars between us and the core.

this is nothing short of incredible.
