I found the incredible images below by following links in a couple of Universe Today posts. I’ve included links to their respective posts below each image.
Since it occurs to me that you might like a copy of this first image to use as wallpaper, as I did, I’ve set it up so that clicking on it will take you to the original Flickr page where you can download the size that best suits your needs:
Go to Astrophoto: Paint the Sky with Clouds for more.
I’ve done something a little different with this second image. Instead of taking you to the download page when you click on it, I’ve added that to the links below and made use of the really cool Zoom.it site, featured in Universe Today’s Zoom into the Moon with this Insanely High-Resolution Mosaic post, to provide you with what I think is one pretty spectacular visual experience:
Go to A New Look at the Horsehead Nebula for Hubble’s 23rd Anniversary for more.
Download your copy from Hubble Sees a Horsehead of a Different Color (04/19/2013).
Wow, I sure wish Zoom.it provided embed codes I could use here! 😀
I want ice water.
