So Beautiful... Should Have Sent... An Impressionist

What better way to end the week, then with a picture of Vincent Van Gogh's The Starry Night, as created by pictures of galaxies, gathered by the Hubble Space telescope. The results, the work of astronomy student Alex Parker, is nothing short of stunning. Apparently, the idea came to him during the Hubble's 22 anniversary, and began with him downloading the Top 100 Images. He then used those 100 pictures over and over to recreate this masterpiece of human imagination.

Thing is, the universe is so vast, galaxies so plentiful, and we've gotten so good at looking out at them, you could just as easily do this again, without using duplicates.
