Hey, great selection!

I did want to point out though that it was the 40th anniversary of the moon landing, not the 50th.

Great collection. Correction on the anniversary number. It should be the 40th anniversary (landing was in 1969) not the 50th. Good stuff though!

If space is so beautiful I would prefer staying on a satellite…I was always fascinated by celestial bodies and this list is one of the best I have come across so far…Though it is very difficult to choose the best from these, I would rate Omicron Beta, Last Dawn, Allurement, Cosmic Sunrise and Remnants as my top five…..Special mention for Allurement and Last Dawn, both are exceptional and hats of to the talent behind them….

Stunning pics! Loved them all :-)

pictures #6 and 11 are beautiful but inaccurate. they show an Occultation of Saturn as it passes in front of the sun. But this would be impossible because in order for this to happen, saturn would have to be in between the sun and us, which its not. this would not be impossible unless seen from Uranus Or other heavenly body that is farther from the sun than Saturn. But juging from the distance in the drawings, you wouldn’t see this from Uranus with your naked eye as saturn would seem much smaller. but it looks great anyway!

these are awesome
