Living in the city, many of us don’t get to experience the night’s sky in all its true splendor because of light (and other kinds of) pollution unless we head out of town. If you ever lived under a starry, clear night’s sky and miss it, or if you just are curious about astronomy in all its complex and beautiful forms, you might check out the Astronomy Picture of the Day, brought to you by NASA, the Goddard Space Flight Center’s Astrophysics Science Division.
With images like this, who could resist?
