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.

http://apod.nasa.gov 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.
