Astronomy Picture of the Day

Jupiter rising over the Tetons

Astronomy Picture of the Day (APOD) contains the largest collection of annotated astronomical images on the internet. Run by two professional astronomers (Robert Nemiroff and Jerry Bonnell) their sources include professional astronomers, amateur astronomers, photographers and NASA. The pictures are stunning, the annotation liberal, and the archives are extensive.

Each day a different image or photograph of our universe is featured, along with a brief explanation written by a professional astronomer. The picture of the day is often related to current events or new problems in Astronomy or space exploration.

Expand your astronomical acumen or just get some kickin' wallpaper images.
