But remember — that’s a picture of a very small part of the universe. It’s just an insignificant fraction of the night sky

    And people dont believe in aliens lol

    • I believe 100% in aliens, but as we don’t have reliable evidences of their arrival over our solar system, I don’t believe that one of the millions of alien species have ever came here.
