uraniaproject: Milky Way Above Easter Island (2012 Jun 18) 
Why were the statues on Easter Island  built? No one is sure. What is sure is that over 800 large stone statues exist there. The Easter Island statues , stand, on the average, over twice as tall as a person and have over 200 times as much mass. Few specifics are known about the history or meaning of the unusual statues , but many believe that they were created about 500 years ago in the images  of local leaders of a lost civilization. Pictured above , some of the stone giants were illuminated in 2009 under the central band of our Milky Way Galaxy.

Visible in the constellation of Andromeda, NGC 891 is located approximately 30 million light-years away from Earth. The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope turned its powerful wide field Advanced Camera for Surveys towards this spiral galaxy and took this close-up of its northern half. The galaxy’s central bulge is just out of the image on the bottom left.
