If you need some inspiration to get out there and watch, the following set of pictures by Alex Cherney will surely put in in the mood.

If you can relate with such feelings, this gallery will surely put you in the mood to go out and watch the vast empty space out there. At least that’s what happened to me. So if you’ll excuse me, I’ll cut this digression sort and do some star gazing, myself.
