The Milky Way is pictured through the lens of a massive “eye”—sculpted from rock formation located deep within the deserts of Saudi Arabia.

I couldn’t find too much information about the image itself (or the place it was taken), but by most accounts, it’s likely a composite… stitched together using a multitude of different photographs (For what it’s worth, a similar image exists, only it was taken during the daytime).
