Yet another APoD I have to comment on:

Not only is it crazy to think that our entire solar system (including Pluto) – traveling at hundreds of kilometers per second – could fit into the blue pinpoint heads of these spires, the image itself was captured using an adaptive optics system using five laser generated guide stars to help compensate for the blurring effects of planet Earth’s atmosphere.

-Blows my freaking mind…
