LARGEST NIGHT SKY-IMAGE EVER

Spaceimage

Amazing.  Over a decade in the making, containing seven million 125 mega-pixel images, with a resolution so high, you would need 500,000 HD displays to view the image unscaled.  The Sloan Digital Sky Survey has pieced together the largest night sky color image ever.

Nearly half a billion stars and galaxies were discovered through work on the image.
