[This is good]

I love the Scout Project, btw, always linking to top quality stuff.

[geek] Anyway, some of the photos on this site, like this one, got me interested in astronomy at an early age.

More favorites here, here and here. The last one sort of reminds me of those deep sea pictures with the glowing jellyfish. It's so cool to me how two things, on vastly different scales, can look so similar. [/geek]
