Andromeda Galaxy Photograph by Hubble Space Telescope

The Insane Beauty of the Largest Photo Ever Taken by NASA

Ever wondered what a trillion stars looks like? Reddit user floatyverve transformed the largest, most high-resolution photo ever taken by NASA into a stunning video you can experience on your own computer in 4K resolution. The Hubble Space Telescope compiled 7,398 exposures into a single mosaic that captures the Andromeda Galaxy (which, by the way, is 2.5 million light-years away from Earth) like never before.

According to NASA, there are over 100 million stars packed into the image, which was released at the beginning of the year. Who knows what mysterious planets and solar systems await us in our galactic next-door neighbour. Watch the video to get a close-up of the gigapixel photograph in all its glory!
