If I had eyes that could see...

I was just sent this beautiful image, used to illustrate a piece on BBC News on spiral galaxies.  I had a look on the source website, and they have the original image in all its hugeness (and convenient wallpaper sizes) available to download.

I don't think I really need to say anything more about it than please, go and look.  Our galaxy is a beautiful place.
