I think this is either the Andromeda galaxy or the Milky Way Galaxy…but then again I could be way off since there are about 2 billion galaxies in this small universe that is found among about a billion other universes.

In the film Life of Pi there is an incredible scene where Pi, lying on the life boat under the stars asks Richard Parker (the Bengal Tiger) what he sees, what he is looking at. This image not only captures the night sky that reflects upon the ocean, but the journey Pi experiences through Richard Parker's eyes.

In this new view of the Andromeda galaxy from the Herschel space observatory, cool lanes of forming stars are revealed in the finest detail yet. Andromeda, also known as M31, is the nearest major galaxy to our own Milky Way at a distance of 2.5 million light-years, making it an ideal natural laboratory to study star formation and galaxy evolution.
