questionsforum favs: what's the coolest astronomy picture…


This amazed me. Just to the right of the big fireworks explosion is a comet.

Here's the link to the story and explanation.

Edit: The picture is larger in the story and it's easier to see the comet.


@tbgolladay: That's the best I've seen. Awesome find!


The one that I took while in Astronomy class of our moon through a huge telescope.


@theoneill555: I love you. You are SUCH a trouble maker. Thanks for the smile. :-D


i've always been a fan of this one. larger view here


@carl669: That's always thrilled me. How about this? Just saw it on CNN, but I don't know the name.

vote-for2vote-against has been my homepage for the past 6 years. During one semester, a professor had us look at 13 APODs and write summaries about what astronomical entity was being displayed/portrayed.

My favorite: (2010 October 05: Horsehead and Orion Nebulas). It looks like two cosmic forces about to strike one another.
