“Astronomy compels the soul to look upwards and leads us from this world to another” -Plato

The Great Spot of Jupiter! Three Earths can fit within the diameter!
A side view of a spiral galaxy
A beautiful nebula with a rainbow of colors
Orion nebula
A supernova remnant that is close to my heart, Cassiopeia A
The phases of the moon
Star formation within the heart of a beautiful nebula
A picture perfect galaxy
An awe inspiring view
A lovely example of a spiral galaxy
A beautiful nebula full of pinks and blues
Star formation!
an artist's creation of merging galaxies, a beautiful picture
A frosted autumn leaf beneath a star studded sky
A nebula colored with blue and orange hues
The Aurora Borealis from space! A sight few have witnessed


  1. Michelle, this post and the photos you shared - oh my, how utterly peaceful! I've always been fascinated by space and I enjoy reading about astronomy and various space missions. This was just lovely. I'm following you now. :)
