I woke up today and had already seen this stunning video of space before I even saw it in real life because I’m 100% sure it was created in my dreams. It wasn’t, it was rendered in the 3D simulation program Space Engine. But seriously, this digital recreation of space is what every kid imagines when they look up at a starry sky for the first time or learn about the planets and space.
It’s beautiful and I can’t believe it’s a simulation because I’m so sure I’ve seen this so many times before.
