We've seen plenty of optical illusions here at Creative Bloq, and are well used to having our minds blown, boggled, bent, etc. – most often by things that appear to be moving but aren't. But just when we thought we were beyond surprise, here comes another to broaden our horizons.

Speaking of which, take a look at the below photo of a horizon. Except it doesn't look like a horizon, does it – it looks like the curve of the earth in space. Twitter users have had their minds blown by the snap, which, when rotated, takes on an entirely new context. (Looking for more inspiration? Check out the best optical illusions of all time).
