Flying through the Milky Way in 3D

To feel very little thing, while marvel at the greatness and beauty of our galaxy, it is best view this 8-minute video created by Dave A. Chuk, who lives in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

This may seem gorgeous 3D animation, but it is actually the result of hard work done by Dave, in his spare time, over five months.

To achieve this spectacular result the author had to combine individual images captured 400,000 in configure multiple wavelengths by the Spitzer Space Telescope during six years of observations.

The author of the video has given technical explanations about how to create the 3D effect on Reddit.
