From the comments: "Best video display of our Universe and our exact position in it to date....
...As co-leader of the NASA/IPAC Extragalactic Database of galaxy Distances (NED-D), I see and hear everything I can on the galaxies beyond our own Milky Way, especially regarding how they are distributed in 3D space as determined by precise, redshift-independent estimates of their distances. In terms of moving - pardon the pun - pictures, this is by far the best I have seen among numerous motion pictures showing where we are at, literally and figuratively, in the biggest picture of all. Congratulations to the Extragalactic Distances Database (EDD) team on a job superbly done."
