Stunning Space Images (Part 2)

As the original Space Images thread has been locked, I thought I'd kick off a new thread on the beautiful and poetic images taken in outer space.

Here's a breathtakingly detailed image of a dust devil (a type of dusty, weak tornado) on the surface of Mars as taken by the powerful camera on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter spacecraft.

And yet, that map omits well over 1/3 of them - shouldn't someone with a geography specialism know better

That map is only an indication of human presence by showing the levels of light pollution.

I actually feel kind of proud of humanity when I see these pictures. I can't help thinking "screw you dolphins, what have you achieved?"

If you look up to the sky in a directly westerly direction, about 30 degrees below the Moon is the very bright ISS - the International Space Station. It is much brighter than any star and doesn't twinkle.

The ISS manned by 6 astronauts and scientists and the largest structure mankind has ever placed into orbit at about 200 metres in diameter. It is moving across the sky so take a look ASAP.

Go out and take a look now fellow Gaireans!
