I think the fact that it's a work of art makes it even more amazing. Looks like something that Rick Sternbach or Adolf Schaller could have done for "Cosmos."
Those were all great!
LOL Melinda, I love those trees too, reminds me of the Ents in LOTRo. March of the Ents for those wondrous Loremasters! If only they hadn't put in that infernal cash shop and turned themselves into Sony light....

This steel ball falling into sand looks surreal to me.

Computer Simulation. (I wish it moved about half the speed this is set for. Made me kinda dizzy. But it's wonderful!)
Fantastiac! I'll never think of galaxies quite the same way again. This is so dynamic and 3D. You could really see the center spinning faster than the periphery.
I have been fascinated with astronomy since I was about 4 or 5 years old (1943-45). We lived right on the ocean, blackouts were still in effect, and my dad would take me outside at night and point out the constellations to me, and tell me the myths that went with them.
I have never seen night skies like that since then.
That is amazing and frightening.

Beautiful, really. Nature is more super than imaginary supernatural stuff.
