Hey oh, Galileo

The small red dot in the center is Proxima Centauri, the star closest to our sun, and is visible only through a telescope--but, Omygosh, look at the whole picture!

"Every star is a shining luminescence, yet one star on its own would barely be noticed here on earth. It is only through the combination of the light from millions of stars that a beautiful canopy of points of light appears to us."
--Lazer Gurkow
The Counting Paradox

Hey oh, Galileo, with that telescope up to your eye,
What'd you see up there in the sky?
