Prepare to be awed!

This site really makes you feel insignificant, or truly amazing. Florida State University in Tallahassee, Florida has put up a very interesting page on their site. It begins as a view of the Milky Way Galaxy viewed from a distance of 10 million light years and then Zooms in towards Earth in powers of ten. 10 million, to one million, to 100,000 light years and then it finally reaches a large Oak tree. If ever there was a witness to creation, these folks have captured it for our viewing pleasure!

Once you click on the site, the software does all the work. Sit back and magine how perfect our universe is! You can play it forward and backward to be amazed over and over. At the end it says on that and review the process in reverse!
