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.
