Images of Space

A cool Astronomy Picture of the day today (Sunday) - featuring the very weird Eskimo Nebula, which astronomers believe looks like a man wearing a parka. (These guys have such rich metaphors!)

And here, courtesy of Paul McAuley, are some photos of Saturn, its moons, and its rings. There are 24 astonishing images on this page alone, taken by the Cassini spacecraft.
