Breathtaking shots of the Milky Way that take us on a journey through the boundless cosmos. The many stars appear like small creatures in their own microcosm.

Using infrared light, the Spitzer Space Telescope has been taking high resolution images of our galactic center since 2003. (Image: Screenshot / YouTube Video)
Coming over 400,000 of those images in multiple wavelengths of light reveals a new view of our galaxy. (Image: Screenshot / YouTube Video)

Which dramatic scenes captured in the pictures – galaxies are born, grow old and die in huge explosions and their dust is formed again into new heavenly structures. The endless cycle of life is reflected here again, and we may be a witness for a moment.
