Images Of The Night Sky

The night sky has been at the center of developments throughout history. Much of what happened in our world was attributed to alignments in the heavens. Nowadays, we've (mostly) lost our connection with the night sky. Fortunately, there are still folks who interested in the night sky and seeing and understanding what's going on up there. A new website is dedicated to imaging the night sky 'one pixel at a time'. Whether you're an amateur astronomer or astrophotographer, you'll find some great information as well as some amazing astronomical images of all things night sky related. Adventures in Astrophotography contains some serious night sky eye candy. The accompanying image shows an image of Comet 17P/Holmes. This naked eye comet can be found high in the northeastern sky in the constellation Perseus.
