They have one of my favorites on there, October 24 2006, two antennae galaxies in collision. Stunning.

APOD has been a daily ritual for me for nearly ten years now.

I've also been checking this out for quite some time. Someone else interested both in the mind blowing pictures from space, as well as fighting on the front line of the war against religious fundamentalism's war on science, is http://www.badastronomy.com/

Thanks for sharing, it's just the sort of thing I've been looking for.

Ever since moving overseas its always been a habit of mine to find Polaris. I guess its something to do with feeling aimless and metaphorically homeless, seeing that always centers me and I don't feel so far away-it's a bizarre thing to think that even over on the other side of the Atlantic they can look up and see the same thing I am....

Earlier this month Earth ran into a cloud of comet dust (the result was an outburst of Leonids throughout Europe)

Here's a photo I found taken two days ago in Belgium,amazing capture of so called "urban light pillars"...fascinating phenomenon, thought you'd like to see it.

am going to look out for that, Spartacus, as soon as the grey sky lifts....

Thanks to the typical Welsh weather I've been denied a view of the comet so far.
There's another good pic here:

I hope you had the opportunity to view the lunar eclipse last night - it was a wonderful sight.

Oh yes, on such a clear night, it was a treat not to be missed.
