In a World Where Celestial Bodies Were Visible in Our Night Skies


Could you imagine how much different the world's skies would be if we could actually see all of the celestial bodies out there with the naked eye instead of just what appear to be little white star specs in a solid black sky?

This video render, which is 100% fictional of course, re-imagines our night sky if celestial bodies were actually closer to Earth and what it might look like to peer up into the sky and see these amazing wonders from space.

In the video, you'll see things like galaxies, black holes, supernovas, and star clusters.

We could obviously do without having the back hole anywhere near us for the sake of sanity, but we think it would be really cool to be able to look up and see another galaxy without the help of huge telescopes.
