The Earth’s clouds reflecting moonlight, creating a faint, reddish glow at a beach in northern France. Beyond the clouds lie cosmic dust and star clouds of the Milky Way. The constellation Sagittarius can be seen peaking above the horizon and Jupiter is shining visibly on the right, amongst the stars of the Scorpius constellation.

The Sombrero galaxy
Seriously click it
Let’s just talk about this a moment. This galaxy is 28 MILLION light years away, and we worked out a way to take a photo of it and bring this incredibly clear image back to earth for every insignificant human to see and admire and pause for just a moment out of our lives to respect. Yeah, it’s for science and some information we find will be a tiny stepping stone on the path to helping us sooner or later, but also, we did it because it’s beautiful. Because space, whatever that means, whatever we live in, is huge and incredible and spectacular and beautiful, and finding and searching and learning and asking and just looking is beautiful.
Yeah, humanity can be horrible. But humanity is also damn fucking amazing, and if every now and then an image like this pops up on our dash or our newsfeed or wherever and we stop for a moment in silence, our churning brains paused, then good. It’s amazing and beautiful and we are amazing and beautiful just by being able to look at it.
