Sure, just click the photo! From there you can search the NASA archives if you want more.

Heh - duh. Me and my technophobe tendencies ....

Thanks for the link, then, and the explanation!

I tried to make the link more obvious by using a thicker border, but perhaps I should include "click for the full story" on these images. I haven't always included links, but I try to do it all the time nowadays.

Yes indeedy! Click the "astronomy" tag to see 'em all on one page. Well, all of them from 2007; I still need to tag earlier posts.
