One of my all-time favorite space photos...



Found this on APOD, although I've found it on other sites years back. This is a very rare photo -- Neptune with its moon Triton, in crescent phase -- because the only vantage point where seeing this is possible is outside of the orbit of Neptune.

It's an [img] tag, so just quote it and it should automagically appear...

...oh, and own goal.

Like I'm going to search through all of APOD when you've already found it. And I said I wanted a BIGGER version!

Yeah, but the ones that aren't are little moles on top of big moles.

This is one of my favorites for much the same reason. Though, too, I just think this is an amazing sight. It just stikes me as fantastically beautiful.

That's another excellent one.

Nav, I (re)discovered that pic by using google (I think the words were neptune triton crescent). Look for the entry with an APOD addy.

BTW, that was the largest one I saw out there. I once made a full screen version by stretching it with PSP 5, but it's long gone (both the pic and PSP 5).

I hope this isn't one of those silly sports games questions.

A confection or flavouring sort of like caramel only more buttery.

Am 29. August werden BUTTERSCOTCH in den Astra-Stuben (Ecke Stresemannstr./Max-Brauer-Allee) aufspielen
