Two years ago Axel Mellinger undertook a mission to film a panorama of all the stars in the night sky. Travelling to remote corners of the world he took 3,000 digital photographs, each exposure lasting one hour and a half or more. After more than one hundred hours of computer time, Mellinger electronically stitched the images together into one seamless whole creating a visually stunning masterpiece.

Click the photo above for an amazing view of the sky. It looks like almost any other image of the sky, until you use the controls in the upper right to zoom in . . . And in . . . And in.

Don’t forget to pan left and right to enjoy the entire view.
