How to Watch Milky Way from Your Home

Let’s call this experience “Milky Way VR”.

The Experience of Milky Way VR

I still remember I had a dream like this: sitting on the back of a truck, laying down, and watching the sky full of stars.

Sometimes, I wanted to relive that dream by laying down on the road and just watching the stars. But, of course, I was too shy to do that. It wasn’t even safe.

I didn’t think I could relive my dream last night with Virtual Reality.

But now I know I could.

A few minutes ago, I found a 360-degree video titled “360 VR footage of the Milky Way over Knob Lakes Alaska” uploaded by William Briscoe Photography. Let’s call it “Milky Way VR”.

When I started the video using BeThere Book, I was suddenly brought to Alaska at midnight. The snow was covering the ground. All I saw was white with some pine trees.

But when I looked up to the sky, I saw a sky full of stars.

It was so many stars that the night sky almost didn’t have space.

The scenery put a smile on my lips. My eyes were getting wider and couldn’t stop gazing at them. Feeling wonderstuck, I laid down on the floor and revived my dream.

I saw a shooting star flying above me. Only in a few seconds. And, it was lost.

But it was so beautiful.

And, it was my first time.

This experience is a dream comes true.

And, you have to experience it, too.
