"Mithical" is a personal blog, which means you won't find a consistent amount of just one thing but a wide variety of content posted here ranging from personal posts, photography, quotes, illustrations, social media news and technology, along with a mix of things that signify certain traits about my personality or mood at the moment.
A photo of 200,000 galaxies, a mere 0.004% of our sky.
These images were taken with VISTA, the European Southern Observatory’s Visible and Infrared Survey Telescope for Astronomy (VISTA), a 4.1 meter telescope in Chile. This huge image is actually composed of 6000 separate images, and is the single deepest infrared picture of the sky ever taken with this field of view. Hubble can get deeper, for example, but sees a much, much smaller part of the sky.
You can find the full, high rez version here. It’s worth a look, a very long one. (17,121 x 10,824 pixels & 250MBs)
