Our Universe is truly a wondrously beautiful place (pics)
Edited on Sat Sep-11-10 05:35 PM by lunatica
Here's a slideshow of award winning astronomy photographs. It helps to put things in perspective for a little while.

I can't steal the photos (unfortunately) but here is one from my photobucket account hoping it'll inspire you to click on the above link.
