Stumbled on to this website while wandering around the interweb.
Kind of puts in perspective how insignificant we are in the grand scheme of things.

Am I missing something here? None of the stars are labeled! Where's Alpha Centauri? Where's Epsilon Eridani? Where's Tau Ceti? Where's Epsilon Indi? This just seems like a...….psychedelic hippie VR 'experience' or something.

Ah, OK. I wasn't zooming in correctly. Now I've got it! Yeah, very cool! In fact, I need to keep this handy! May come in useful!
