Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia by night

"When the night comes, the starry sky reflects on its surface like in a mirror, and you have the feeling of being in space."

This Is the Most Detailed Image of the Universe Ever Captured
NASA has just published the most detailed view of the Universe ever taken. It’s called the Extreme Deep Field—or XDF for short. It took ten years of Hubble Space Telescope photographs to make it and it shows some the oldest galaxies ever observed by humans, going 13.2 billion years back in time.
It’s a mindblowing, extremely humbling view. Not only for what it shows, but for what it doesn’t show. While this image contains about 5,500 galaxies, it only displays a tiny part of the sky, a ridiculously small slice of the Universe.


If our own Milky Way galaxy contains a minimum of 100 billion planets… *whistleswhileraisingeyebrows

sci-universe:

Look up at the stars: the 2013 Geminid meteor shower will peak on the nights of December 12-14.

The show starts at mid-to-late evening and ends at dawn. No matter your location, Geminid meteors will fall most plenty after midnight on December 13 and 14. (More information)
These gifs are of the last year’s Geminid meteor shower, here's the full video.

these gifs are star trails and airplanes. taken during the geminids maybe, but there isnt a single meteor in these shots.

click through to the video if you want to see meteors.

correction: there are three faint meteor streaks in the top right gif .
