The Milky Way, shining over Switzerland like a boss.
A meteor streaks against the background of the Milky Way, above the mountain fortress of Alamut. Alamut castle was built into the rock here in central Alboraz Mountains of Iran sometime in the late 9th century and was home to the legendary assassins that were featured in the Prince of Persia movie. It was also a center for libraries and education.
That is BOSS.

The Milky Way shimmers over a mountain in Bursa, Turkey, with Jupiter shining brightly in the middle.
Our sister galaxy, Andromeda. We will be seeing more and more of Andromeda within the next few billion years, because it is currently hurtling toward the Milky Way. Eventually, the two star clusters will collide and form a massive elliptical galaxy. And how cool is that?
