The scientist also described that the shining light on the top of the picture is a high pitch sound and claims that the intensity of lights in the Milky Way regulates the sound volume. Scientists wrote, "The light of objects located towards the top of the image is pitched higher, while the intensity of the light controls the volume. Stars and compact sources are converted into individual notes, while extended clouds of gas and dust produce an evolving drone," they added.

The post has garnered 1.8 lakh views since it went online, along with a flood of comments. Whoever came across the post expressed their opinion after hearing the sound. One Instagram user said, "Divine sounds". The second person's comment read "Beautiful". "Wow," wrote a third guy.
