Surreal Photos Of The Night Sky Show Off The Beauty Of The Milky Way

Outerspace is completely rad. We all know this. And us earthlings will be able to experience it in one of its coolest forms when there's a meteor shower at the end of this month (it'll be the most visible on the night of April 22nd and morning of April 23rd).

If you need something to tide you over until then, may we interest you in some surreal photos of the night sky?
