ASTRONOMY IMAGES OF THE DAY
Everyday, NASA directly provides us with a different astronomy photograph of our fascinating universe — as well as the agency’s adventures in outer space. Accompanying each image are brief explanations, often written by a professional astronomer and scientist or reported on occasion by an independent journalist.
See NASA astronauts circle around an ice-covered world right in our solar system. Expect authentic insider views of the U.S. space agency. Official NASA photographs from agency photographers chronicle what’s making news across the agency from launches and rocket landings to important discoveries in space science. Look out for aerospace views — captured frequently by astronauts who conduct space walks as their satellite vehicles orbit our home planet.
Have you seen that supermassive black hole at the center of spiral galaxy? No, not yet? NASA satellite and airborne instruments picture Earth every day to increase our knowledge of our home and improve lives. These images, shared with scientists and the public worldwide, may use visible light, like a photographer’s camera, or peer into infrared, microwave and radio wavelengths that are invisible to human eyes.
Our magnificent planet is always ready for its close-up.
