An unusual Ascension

Most images of Our Lord's Ascension show Him lifting up in view of the apostles and His mother or they show His feet and the apostles straining to see Him for as long they can. This painting by Gustave Dore shows the Lord well above the earth with the angels as His witnesses.

Wonder how long it took Him to get above the stars?

Moments or 24 hours at light speed?

In the latter case, He would be "inaugurating" pearly gates 42 days exactly after earning their opening to mankind.
