SpaceX CEO Elon Musk is known for his eccentric social media posts (Read stunts). Sometimes he shares posts related to science, other times it could be a joke or a humorous meme. Or - most often than not - random thoughts and declarations that are ever so common on Musk’s timeline. Some of them are so far out that it’s hard to understand if he meant it as a joke.
While his bizarre tweets often end up offending netizens, the Tesla CEO on Thursday won the Internet. He took to Twitter to share something that would cheer up anyone who needs it. The motivational post calls for throwing light upon the darkness in a very literal sense.
Musk shared a picture of a full moon in a sky filled with darkness and asked to “turn up the brightness to see the stars.” As it turns out on increasing the brightness on a mobile device or a computer screen, the stars do reveal themselves as the message appears: “You, You’re the star.”

“Star Light, Star Bright,” Musk captioned it. It was only a matter of time before several social media users tried it out and shared their own opinion on the subject. The post has garnered more than 86,000 likes and has been retweeted over 11,0000 times.
Several people thanked Musk for the motivational picture. The picture can indeed brighten up the mood for any person who is going through a tough time.
