Map of the Day: Oh My God, It's Full of Stars

Screen Shot 2013-01-21 at 8.05.08 AM

Stéphane Guisard, who works the Paranal Observatory in Chile, has put together a mind-bending map of the center of the Milky Way galaxy.  It's huge (24,000 x 14,000 pixels).  And it's fully zoomable.

The vast number of stars in this picture (of a small corner of one galaxy) is enough to completely melt your brain.

Check out the map right here.
