This is my favorite space picture ever.

If you enlarge it, the little dot towards the top is Earth.

There is a reason why this is the best picture.

It has AMERICA on it.

Fixed. If it was north, you wouldn't be able to see the Red Spot.

guys, don't expect an eclipse this year. this has been posted before, so who knows when the next one will be.

How are they able to get a picture of Saturn with the sun on the other side? At no point in our orbit EVER has there been a point where Saturn is between us and the sun. And I know we haven't sent anything out that far....have we?

I think the picture of Saturn in front of the Sun was shopped

Voyager

I don't remember which year, but that was a picture taken by Voyager a couple decades ago. I BELIEVE it's the only space craft to ever leave the solar system.
User avatar #280 to #278 - jazzspeaks (05/08/2013) [-]
Ok, yeah, I found it.

1977, two space probes, Voyager 1 and 2

I've seen all of these except Jupiter's North Pole, and Saturn and Uranus in infrared light, which was interesting as **** .
My only complaint with posts like these is a matter of quality. I collect pictures like this. This is like a fat person being forced to stare at the window of a really awesome candy store, and being told that they can't have it.

Now I feel compelled to search each of these individually and finding the images I want. o_e
Here, have a picture of the Eskimo Nebula. I have more if anyone wants me to post them.
#240 to #233 - articulate (05/08/2013) [-]
Sure, why not. I'll post wallapapers in return that are, afaik, not real.
#245 to #240 - zurk (05/08/2013) [-]
Io and Jupiter.
#250 to #249 - zurk (05/08/2013) [-]
That's my wallpaper already! :D This is a long exposure photograph. Just a bit pretty.
#251 to #250 - articulate (05/08/2013) [-]
Got any more like that?

This one and the next one I'll post are my favourites.
#253 to #251 - zurk (05/08/2013) [-]
This one's probably edited, but it's similar. I have similar pictures from the ISS.
To save you a lot of trouble, this is where I get most of my pics:

Though it sometimes takes a long time to load.

Wicked. Thanks bro, smell ya later.

Thank you for these wonderful wallpapers.
Have a lovely day!

Okedokie! Here's the Butterfly Nebula. Though not very hi-def.

Start with your best quality ones.

That's an awesome picture with the Matterhorn! And will do.
User avatar #151 - Shaostoul (05/07/2013) [-]
And people wonder why I find space so ****** awesome. I think it'd be awesome to live on a planet with rings or a moon next to a planet... with ring. XD

The universe = coolest thing ever.

If there were a moon within the ring, it'd be possible, albeit extremely dangerous, but generally the ring is made up of tons and tons of small rocks.

Blue Marble: Best image of Earth with Freedom as the focal point

I'd argue that the center of the picture is actually Mexico.

Can someone explain to me how they would manage to get a lighted picture of the dark side of the moon?
User avatar #102 to #87 - tinglyturtletaint (05/07/2013) [-]
It isn't actually "dark" it's the side of the moon that doesn't face earth. Either taken by a satellite orbiting the moon or during the apollo missions while the one guy stayed in the pod orbiting the moon.
User avatar #79 - kamansel ONLINE (05/07/2013) [-]
Just wondering why a lot of the images had tons of black space... but no stars...?
#116 to #79 - fyeahpkmn (05/07/2013) [-]
NOW I COULD BE WRONG but i heard that the closest star is like Billlions of miles away... and like are huge and we only see some light refracted by them or something like that.. so theres no stars around the moon or anything theyre some millions and millions of miles away.. I THINK.. i think ._. You know?

Plz don't talk about space... It scares me.

Basically a camera issue. Stars are much more dim than light reflected by planets. Such as here on earth if you wanna photograph bright and dark object side by side you either set exposure to dark, then bright object comes out totally blown out in pure white on photo. Or you set exposure to bright, like in this case, and then dark object comes out as pitch black
User avatar #99 to #96 - kamansel ONLINE (05/07/2013) [-]
Thank you, i thought it might have something to do with reflected light, but i dont know **** about cameras

Anyone care to explain to me what causes the Aurora Borealis?
User avatar #105 to #77 - tinglyturtletaint (05/07/2013) [-]
Earth's magnetic field interacting with and directing charged particles generally from solar wind.
User avatar #106 to #105 - soopergrover (05/07/2013) [-]
Ahh, neat. Thanks!
