Bad Astronomy's List

Phil Plait at Bad Astronomy Blog has posted his top ten images post for the year as well.

My favorite is above- I do love me some lightning. Here's the explanation:
Jens Hackmann took this stunning picture of a lightning storm near the Weikerscheim Observatory; the 300 second exposure is enough to see the stars streak and the observatory lit up by ambient light. Sometimes, when it’s cloudy, observing is difficult… but you can still get incredible pictures.
I agree with Plait, astronomy IS the most lovely science.

Astronomy Pictures of the Year

Astronomy Pictures of the Day has posted their list of the Astronomy Pictures of the Year for 2007. The first one up is a lovely photo of Comet Maxx. Though I wish they'd get the name right.

The photo above is The Seven Dusty Sisters, photo credit to NASA and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory at Caltech. Simply gorgeous.

Do click the link and see which image is your favorite.

Lion kitty Maxx and his comet

I can't believe he's been gone almost a year.


Is there anything lovelier than a ringed planet? Doesn't it just make you think of rocket ships and swashbuckling space pirates from the stories of your youth?
