Getting Spacy

Did you ever dream of space as a kid? These photos are magic. And each day NASA posts a new photo, a glimpse into another world. Some of these are not unlike otherworldly abstract paintings. These beauties are best enjoyed with Moby on the background (who incidentally is into space pictures himself).

Sharp view of the sun.  This is stunning!

Another photo of the sun

The Rosette Nebula. Note to self, improve one’s understanding about nebulas, something so perfect is worth knowing about.
Starburst Galaxy also known as Cigar Galaxy with superwind.

Orion Nebulae

Have you had enough? For more go to NASA's Astronomy Picture of the Day, there is lots more where these from - and you can learn about nebulae, sun spots, and supernovas.
