The one thing that has always drawn my attention to the skies more than anything else has been the imagery. I am not educated in the complex area of physics and such, so I am forced to enjoy the universe one pic at a time.

The following is a series of pics I came across on the MSNBC website and I thought I would share it with everyone.

Enjoy!

The Earth Also Rises!


Man on The Moon


Sun With a Monstrous Claw


Solar Eclipse From Space


Stars Are Born


Perspective on the Pillars


Our Galactic Neighbor


Earth (and our lights) at Night


The First Shuttle


Robot Attacks the Space Station


My personal favorite is the pillars series of pics.

Here is a 'reloaded' series of the pillars that you can look at.. They are beautiful and amazing!

Thanks for looking and please add any pics you think ATS would enjoy.

Nice!
But I'm surprised the Ultra Deep Field isn't among them.

Lovely Thread
Thanks for sharing.

I'm planning on giving a talk about 'The wonders of space' to some school children, this has given me a lot of great ideas. Many Thanks.
That solar eclipse from space picture is amazing. Never seen something like that before.

One of my favorites, the Crab Nebula:

NASA pointed the Hubble telescope at the emptiest part of the sky they could find and did an ultra long exposure. Despite the tiny field of view Hubble captured 10,000 galaxies and the UDF became an instant historical image.

It's really worth reading the description below the image viewer.

I agree the Ultra Deep Field is one of most important. First time we even had any IDEA of how small we really are..

Ive read books. I grew up reading government books in school. Dont force your ignorance on me. Why dont you look at all the proof around you that the moon pictures are fakes. Or live in your little box the government has made for you. Work, hate and die. I choose to be free.

The one of Saturn solar eclipse taken by Cassini where you can see earth through a gap in the outer rings some astronomers call the most amazing image from space.


Wiki has the high rez, but they are protesting today, and shut the site down.

Hubble deep field, yes, considered the most important image ever taken.

Of course a personal favorite of mine is the Eta Carinae Nebula part of which holds the Keyhole nebula and a star that exploded in the mid 1800's making the Homunculus nebula.

Image number six always makes me think of someone flipping the bird or giving someone the finger. It's probably just that word that begins with P that I can never remember though. Pareidosis...? No...that's not right. The mind trying to see familiar objects in vague forms or something vaguely similar.

Watch this video, it's about the Hubble Deep Field image
