What’s more captivating than a starry night?

No one knows how many stars exist in the uni­verse. The Milky Way alone is esti­mat­ed to con­tain at least 300 bil­lion stars. Regard­less of the total num­ber, one thing can be said of stars. Whether very old or very young, rich, poor, or just ordi­nary– we all gaze up at the same stars each night. Where­as we might lose inter­est with a book or activ­i­ty, these tiny dots nev­er cease to cap­ti­vate us. With­out fur­ther ado, here is a com­plila­tion of our favorite night star images on Wunderstock.
