Ahh, I wondered why the site had gone down. Everyone's grabbing themselves a new desktop...;)

A benevolent slashdotter mirrored the new pics. Unfortunately they're low res jpegs. Hopefully we'll be able to get the real deal soon...

There's only so much cosmic beauty I can take.

Every time I look up at the nighttime sky, I feel both invited and chided by God.

Great link. Thanks.

"Krepron-9, you've done it again. Those paintings of yours you keep holding up to that silly earth-telescope have fooled the silly two-legged O-2 breathers yet again. Slap tentacles with me, man!"

Take it to PanGalaticGargleTalk...

Beautiful. The full-res version of the 'pinwheel firework' galaxy is my new wallpaper, suitably cropped.
