space + pixels

places to go
nobody to see
If you like space, you'll love my the 12,000 billion light-year map of clusters, superclusters and voids. Find the biggest nothings in Boötes and Eridanus.
She looks like the Moon
and I can be the world

The Moon, near side

Expect stunning vistas, infinite line of sight and zero fresh air. Bring a space suit.

The map is based on the 3.6 gigapixel image of the near side of the moon taken by the Lunar Reconnaisance Orbiter Camera. Topological annotations taken from Gazetteer of Planetary Nomenclature by the International Astronomical Union (IAU) Working Group for Planetary System Nomenclature (WGPSN). The resolution is 100 meters per pixel.
