Lightbulb Astro-Photography (Space Photography)

My first thread in the arts section. Roaming teh intrawebz, I just stumbled upon a Year's Astronomy Photos collection. As a visual arts student myself, I find these astronomy photos really interesting, not just the cool visuals also the knowledge that it's only a tiny fraction of a vast limitless universe. It really puts our world in a perspective. I get a bit of vertigo, just by looking at them.

Here are some trippy photos of outer space:











...anyways, feel free to comment, to add more of your own, blah blah. You know the drill.

It is more of Earth from Space timelapse photography than space photography I guess. But, I like it more than pictures of endless stars.

Slightly different, a bit esoteric. Has anyone else enjoyed looking at these?

They are the 'Celestographs' of August Strindberg (made circa 1894)

Quote:
The experiments involved quite simply placing his photographic plates on a window sill or perhaps directly on the ground (sometimes, he tells us, already lying in the developing bath) and letting them be exposed to the starry sky.

The black or darkly earth-colored pictures that eventually appeared are strewn with a myriad small, lighter dots that Strindberg thought were stars. That they might have been drops of dew, some kind of atmospheric particles, or just some dirt in the developer cannot be ruled out.

A small satellite galaxy being torn apart by a greater galaxy (one of similar size to the Milky Way) and stretched into a ribbon.

^ I think the photo above was rather an artistic rendering of a galaxy being torn apart. It's based on a space photo of a real phenomenon, but the real thing is a million-year process that wouldn't look so cool on a picture.

I've always loved looking at photographs of outer space. They are so beautiful and mysterious. My favorite images are from the Hubble Telescope.

The Hubble Ultra-Deep Field images show galaxies as far away as 13 billion light-years.
