You just found APOD? It's a cool site. I like to check it each day to see the new photo.

I've been looking at APOD, and I'm impressed. Too bad it would take way too long to look at all of them.

I check this site out every now and then and yes, the pics are awesome. I have to say, there are some truely, beautiful objects out there.

There's lots of threads on this same very site. Try the Search Function.

Also, APOD and other picture sites can be found in the Space Exploration Reference Library.
