This is on a GREAT online magazine called, MessageToEagle.com

Use above link for the entire story. I just wanted to share this great video the spectacular view of the central parts of the Milky Way. As we close in on the constellation of Scorpius


The image is based on FORS1 data obtained by the Paranal Science team with the VLT through 2 wide (B and V) and 3 narrow-band filters.

This zoom video sequence starts with the spectacular view of the central parts of the Milky Way. As we close in on the constellation of Scorpius, one of the richest parts of the sky, many clusters and nebula appear. The final sequence closes in on an apparently unremarkable star, IRAS 17163-3907, which has been found by recent VLT observations to be a rare yellow hypergiant star, surrounded by two shells.

    ,we are on a balcony to the Infinite
    we again are in front of an immense space perceivable in some subtle ways also as a hologram vivid colorful we are sharing with Eternity ,,the feeling is so strong beyond and inside polarities i find no words we were there again ,,mind empty in real Presence,,,




























    amazing silently tunin in the infinite symphony
