sass chicken: girl at the water fountain just complemented me on my hair and said it was like some kind of "intergalactic space thing"
sass chicken: i guess because my greys are shiny
sass chicken: (space hair?)
Stygian Syzygy: you are some intergalactic space thing

(My grey hairs tend to stick out among my purple dye, since I don't bleach my medium-slightly-reddish-brown and the rest of my hair thus looks pretty dark, especially if not backlit. The silver ones, on the other hand, turn !PURPLE!. As for the video footnote to understand what I was getting at with that last remark, uh, sorry for the earworm?)

The Mystery

It will probably be impossible to see any detail at the size DeviantArt makes the thumbnails, so clicking through is the thing to do.
arethinn: glowing green spiral (weird (crow spacechild))
I have been looking at astrophotography for so long that I am pretty numb to a lot of it now. Yawn, another nebula. Yawn, another spiral galaxy. But now and then, APOD still manages to make me literally gasp.

*stare*

*cry*

Petalwing want go homeplace.

Looking at today's APOD gave me a weird, almost vertigo-like sensation of motion (although not quite that strong). It was like I was feeling the individual identities of the two main galaxies pictured, as well as the smaller, but distinguishable one at bottom center of the frame, and their whirling motion through space, combined with the star-threads (...communications links, like) between a number of the other stars (which I suppose are all in the Milky Way, although the descriptive text only mentions the ones with spikes specifically), and a faint sense of the vast beings that soar through the empty spaces, their awarenesses touching and overlapping with those of the stars and galaxies.

Like whoa, dude.
