Ginormous Panorama of the Night Sky by Nick Risinger

Nick Risinger, a 28-year old amateur astrophotographer, trekked 60,000 miles across the western US and South Africa to create this enormous 360-degree panorama of the night sky.

360-degree panorama of the night sky. The Milky Way, our home galaxy, cuts through the center of the photo with its bright arms, glowing gas, and dark nebulae.
It doesn't get really impressive until you click-in to the massive, scrollable panorama here:

Then it becomes OMG! Be sure to turn on constellations and identification of objects. This is one of the best sky maps I have ever seen. Congratulations to Nick! A formidable accomplishment.
