From breathtaking nebulae to spectacular galaxies, the cosmos is chock-full of stunning celestial objects. But think how stunning those objects might look if they were much closer to Earth -- close enough for us to see them in the night sky without having to use a telescope?
The Russian space agency Roscosmos recently took on that thought experiment, creating a series of simulations in a new YouTube video (above). The video features the nearby Andromeda galaxy, the iconic Ring Nebula, and even a massive black hole.
