I had something like that on my left testical. Doc said it was just a glitter tag and to stay away from strippers for a few weeks.
Astounding. I suggest taking a tour. If you like it you should check out www.lsst.org where a Large Synoptic Survey Telescope will produce an unprecedented wide-field astronomical survey of our universe using an 8.4-meter ground-based telescope that will be free and open to the public.
I'd hate to be the snob here, but 100,000 stars is just a tiny fraction of the billions of stars in the Milky Way.
