    The first pic looks like a hand grabbing at something, the second looks like some planet in meltdown, the third looks like the statues at easter island, and the fourth looks like a single statue at easter island,, the fith looks like nothing i have seen....

    Just my thoughts folks.
    Love. peace and Blessings to you all.

    Agreed, WhiteFeather. As a child, I used to say "the night sky is worth the price of coming back to this planet." Photos like this are like memories to me.

    Even though those are composite and wouldnt actually look like that in real life, they are absolutely magnificant. The pillars the second one in the first post is quite amazing.

    the crab nebula is pretty spectacular aswell;



    I think though that one of my favorite space photos is the deep field project, it was done with over 300 different exposures over the course of 10days, in the constellation Ursa Major. They(NASA I know that is an evil word to alot of people) wanted to see what they could find in a very deep dark spot in space, they found a nice chunk of what they thought was nothing and took a very long series of photos of this darkness to see what they could find, and what they found was absolutely stunning, that lil plot of nothing turned out to be filled with over 3,000 galaxies of all ages, some of them up to 12,000,000,000 lightyears away. -

    Toad, if I remember correctly, the deep field photo is of one tiny sliver or pinpoint in space out of the huge 360 degrees of the universe. So, mulitply what is seen in this pinpoint by a near infinite number of pinpoints and WOW!

    Yeaup, you're right, they took a very very small spot in the sky they thought was entirely black and empty, and looked at it (exposed) for a very long time, and gathered as much information (light) as they could, and what they found was absolutely amazing. So even the parts of the sky we think are really black and empty are totally the opposite. The universe is a magical place.

    Quote The Hubble Deep Field (HDF) is an image of a small region in the constellation Ursa Major, constructed from a series of observations by the Hubble Space Telescope. It covers an area 2.5 arcminutes across, about one 24-millionth of the whole sky, which is equivalent in angular size to a 65 mm tennis ball at a distance of 100 metres. The image was assembled from 342 separate exposures taken with the Space Telescope's Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2 over ten consecutive days between December 18 and December 28, 1995.
