iomikron:

This is roughly the view of our neighbouring brightest galaxies if you were 20 million light years away from ‘home’ (red dot). A closer view reveals the closest neighbours as well. In a very small distance there are two galaxies surrounding the Milky Way, the Large and the Small Mangelanic Clouds.

Howdy neighbors! Well, stellar neighbors, anyway.

Love to see this kind of creation from our Tumblr friends, by the way. Not that I don’t have love for the whole internet, but fellow Tumblr Science folks are sort of like the Magellanic Clouds of our blogging Milky Way. Just that much better than the rest of the galaxies.

So go meet them all, or something.
