The sky is the limit. Well, it is the limit, if you can imagine that it contains more than 562 million stars, galaxies, asteroids, planets and objects, according to NASA that has released a mosaic of images covering the entire night sky, as captured by the infrared cameras of the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) mission, which has been collecting data for the past two years.

You can see this panorama of the entire sky, compiled by 18,000 images here.
