In this collection of breathtaking images from space, some are familiar, some are new, all are spectacular. Here are Earth, the Moon, Sunset, Earthrise over the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Europa, Jupiter and Io, ringed Saturn, blue Neptune and Neptune’s moon Triton, and the Sun . . . our solar system seen in a whole new way.

Constellations, stars, star clusters, nebulae, supernova remnants, Milky Way dust, cloud galaxies, galaxies, galaxy clusters, a hypernova . . . and so much more.

A description and some information about the image accompany each photograph. Also included in each description is information about how NASA obtained the image.

Each photograph is exquisite; readers with an interest in stars and space will find much to appreciate here.

Highly recommended. ( )
