These twenty-five mind blowing photos will make you completely reevaluate your vision of the world.

Sometimes we need to just stop and think about who we are and be aware of what's around us.











“When I look up at the night sky, and I know that, yes, we are part of this Universe, we are in this Universe, but perhaps more important than both of those facts is that the Universe is in us. When I reflect on that fact, I look up — many people feel small, ’cause they’re small and the Universe is big, but I feel big, because my atoms came from those stars.” — Dr. Neil DeGrasse Tyson, astrophysicist

9. And even those do not capture the vastness of our universe.

Our galaxy is just as tiney in the universe as our earth is tiny in it.
And if you gown down into the atomic world the vastness is just the same.
The truth is even stranger than we can imagine.

23. Are we on the good ship lollypop

Earth a marvelous transport of life in an incredible system where I feel so humble. The sun our life clock that gives energy that sustains different forms and creates new forms constantly.

This afternoon listening to Rush Limbaugh saying what can liberals shout about that they are proud of in this political time. My answer is being educated and knowing there is climate change and we can do something about it.

Or perhaps the real reason Rush Limbaugh and the insurance people that pay his bonus ask him to rant that way, will give insurance corporate America time to saturate the electromagnetic spectrum, to rewrite policies that eliminate “acts of God” to rewrite new policies that confirm corporate America ignores the pollution they perpetuate.

Of course Rush Limbaugh and other political people ignore the estimates that the Eastern sea board will eventually be under water. The grand children will look back likely be embarrassed by their political heritage that follows Limbaugh’s rant against climate change.

Can you imagine no Wall Street, New York, underwater literally. It is likely a probability unless the political mind set changes.

33. The second one is absurd.

We can see other galaxies, such as the Andromeda galaxy, with the naked eye. The statement "All the stars you see at night are just part of this yellow circle" is seriously in error.

35. Perhaps #2 should read...

"The number of stars we can see in the night sky is equivalent to the number of stars in this yellow circle."
