Outer Space Artists at Work




Everyday I check the site Astronomy Picture of the Day and nearly every time, I get blown away by the photos taken in outer space from a satellite or from earth through powerful telescopes.

Then I think, this must be where our modern artists get their inspiration from! How beautiful and ethereal are these beclouded remnants of stars and galaxies past.








Go check it out: http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/archivepix.htm

You can click on Archives, and see what the outer space artists have been up to.

Totally awesome. One of my favorite experiences as a Navy jet pilot (years ago!) was to fly on a clear night with the universe above and sprinkled lights of man below. I never saw anything like those pictures, but what I saw was awe-inspiring anyway.

Judy, I have this link marked. I might actually find the next incarnation of "Planet Brenda" somewhere in these pictures.

Truly stunning... I remember as a child when my father brought me to our public library for an "Astronomy Night". They had highpowered telescopes set up, and I can remember seeing for myself for the very first time that Saturn really DID have rings! I was completely blown away seeing it for myself and not just in a textbook. To this day I've a fascination with our universe and beyond and I hope that sometime in my lifetime we'll all be able to take vacation trips into space!!

Those pics are so extraordinary! It really is mind blowing to see what's out there.
The pic of Europe at night below is also very cool. I saw one like this of the US too.
