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 "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.

The larger sizes are shown in the same browser window.

Use the Back button of your browser to return to this thumbnails page.

Alternatively: In most browsers, you can click the right mouse button when
the cursor is over a link, then choose to open the link in a separate window.

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 (300x500 or 500x300 pixels or thereabout).

    (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.)
