starry night

as per usual, some mood music before we get any further...

I learned of a few years ago, and then forgot about until yesterday, the part of the NASA website that posts astronomy photos every day.  Here are a few of my favorites.

There are hundreds more of these beautiful photos here.


  1. Excellent, I love stars, and for some reason ruins always seemed pretty to me. At least the ancient ones. :3

  2. Yay, so glad you liked it! I'm a fan of ruins and stars too, especially when they're together. In sort of an existentialist 'the stars were here before these ruins and before me and they'll be here after I and the ruins are both gone' kind of way.

  3. Certainly helps give you a sense of perspective!

    I wonder how many ruins orbit those stars?


thank you so much for visiting, and for your thoughts! x
