  • The stars are not close for multiple reasons. The universe and galaxy are very large, stars are located throughout it. This can span distances of light years.

    Thats a pretty piss poor reason. Not gonna lie. If the stars were really tens, even hundreds of light years away, it would be impossible to simply zoom in, and they wouldn't look like water

    Are you Sirius? (that's an astronomy joke)
    Neither of those links shows a close up view of stars, it's merely a zoomed-in view using a feeble terrestrial video camera. 

    Of course, attempting such a thing results in the visual distortion displayed in those links.

    @JoePineapples Sirius-ly tho, if they were 10's or 100's of lights years away, why could you zoom in and why would they look like water? Like, you see Sun? Now I have to get out of this Altair ego.

    I like this one, look at it, and tell me this is due to some distortion. Waiting on your reply in the earth is flat debate.
