This website by astrophysicist Richard Powell contains nine main maps of the universe, ranging from 12.5 light years to 15 billion light years from the sun. Each map contains several other corresponding maps as well as descriptions of what is being shown. The maps give perspective to the vastness that lies beyond earth and explains things such as "where is the center of the universe." and "where did the big bang occur."
