"To the eye of imagination, the great earth has become visibly a sphere; now great, but now a granule in the huge void. Bright Jupiter lies far afield. The vault of the sky, no longer a pricked black tent, is expanded to be depth beyond depth of empty darkness, with here and there a sun, reduced by distance to a mere punctual star. The Milky Way, that vague over-arching stain, is seen now as a tenuous dust of suns, extending outwards disc-wise, far afield beyond the constellations. The blackness around the pole is deep beyond all sounding, is space boundless; wherein the immense galaxy itself is but a mote, a minute wisp of stars. Within that darkness, for imagination’s eye, the swarming galaxies drift like snowflakes; each flake a host of suns, numerous as the sand; each flake the matrix of a million earth-like worlds. The whole unnumbered multitude of the galaxies, so some astronomers say, bursts ever apart, the more remote of them racing away faster than light’s own speed; inaccessible, therefore, to vision."

Olaf Stapledon, The Heavens Declare—Nothing, published after his death at 1954.

Thanks for brilliant work- LD :+fav:.

I've always been a huge fan of "relative" space scapes... as there is something to relate them to earth or a solid source or planet in the foreground or bottom of the piece

The satelites really put the nails in the coffin for me so to speak... a perfect choice for the piece

You have my absurd and devoted admiration :)
