Ladies and gentlefolk, I present to you a picspam of universal proportions.
"It never gets old."
"It kinda makes you want to..."
"Break into a picspam?"
The Sun is a miasma of incandescent plasma:
The Sun's not really made out of gas, no, no...
Total Eclipse of the Heart:
Hey, it was that or a Twilight reference. I chose the lesser of two evils.
'Cause I'm a rocket man:
Now I'm floating free and the Moon's with me and it's bright enough to light the dark...
...and share the wonders I've seen.
Is there life on Maaaaaaaars?:
If you're humming Knights of Cydonia, don't worry, so am I.
Jupiter, Bringer of Jollility:
Unfortunately, I'm all out of Jupiter puns.
Saturn, Bringer of Old Age:
Saturn also gets no pun-love. This needs to be remedied.
Neptune and Uranus:
While the material here is just ripe for the picking, I'm going to have to go for the Harry Potter reference: Can I look at Uranus too, Lavender?
I'm Your Moon(s):
From out here, it's the rest of the world that looks so small.
Star Light, Star Bright:
I wish I may, I wish I might...
Polvo de Estrellas:
One little star made of nothing, in the periphery of a minor galaxy; one in so many millions, and a grain of dust orbiting around it.
...and dust to dust:
We won't leave footprints, only stardust.
The galaxy that lived inside your eyes...
You Are Here:
That pale blue dot in the upper-right corner of the middle image? That's Earth. Just a little perspective for you.
Boom de ya da, boom de ya da, boom de ya da, boom de ya da...
(Obviously, if you have any pictures you want to add, please don't hesitate. Science available upon request. Posted publicly here on Dreamwidth and here on Livejournal. Enjoy. ♥)
That was gorgeous :) Clearly you have a hotline to the awesomest astronomy pictures around!
Hee, thank you! And it's more like NASA does - 99% of these are taken from the Astronomy Picture of the Day
archives. :D I'm glad you enjoyed it!
This picspam made me ridiculously happy. ♥
