Call Me Stormy

Finding righteous currents in turbulent times

The Milky Way Obsession

Space might not be the final frontier, but it is the next. Parts of our Earth are just as alien to us as the deepest parts of space and, at times, it might be easier to uncover the mystery of the cosmos than our own world.

Finnish astrophotographer J.P. Metsavainio took it to the extreme, creating a mosaic of the Milky Way Galaxy, a 12-year project to collect sufficient data. Total exposure time used was about 1,250 hours between 2009 and 2021. The final photo is about 100,000 pixels wide, including 234 individual mosaic panels stitched together and 1,7 gigapixels. Here’s more on the project with BuzWeaver from The Lost History Channel TKTC.
