Epic time-lapse shows what the Milky Way will look like 400,000 years from now

Have you ever seen 40,000 shooting stars blaze across the sky at the same time?

If you’d like to, the European Space Agency (ESA) is offering you two options: Either stare at the night sky for about half a million years as our solar system drifts steadily through the Milky Way (some patience required) — or, watch a new 60-second time-lapse simulation of the same thing, courtesy of the ESA’s Gaia space observatory.
