This ASTRONOMY Images page
! Preliminary !
Pictures, categories, and information links
may be added, if I ever revisit this page.


These pictures show the magnificence of the 'heavenly bodies' --- both within our solar system and beyond it.

The power-output and energy and mass in the 'macro-elements' of the universe are beyond comprehension. Take a moment once in a while to see photos like these --- to give some perspective to man's place in the universe --- and to give some perspective on what we are doing to our tiny domicile, Earth, that we are on the road to making an unrecognizable parking lot and stink hole ... compared to its former, lush, species-nurturing green and blue self.

More Images and Info

In case I never get back to this page to add more (or better) photos, there are 'WEB SEARCH' links below --- to find images related to keywords such as 'solar flare' or 'asteroid'.

For convenience, there are also Wikipedia links below the 'WEB SEARCH' links --- to find information on the image objects. You can follow links in Wikipedia pages to find extensive information on various astronomical objects.

Image Sizes

Most of the pictures below are presented in a small "thumbnail" size (60 pixels high or thereabout) --- with a link to a larger size picture (about 300x500 or 500x300 pixels or larger).

    (Photos smaller than 200x250 or 250x200 or thereabout are generally not presented here because they are rather disappointing compared to photos on the order of 300x300 or larger.)
