Holy crap - some kid out there with no life is going to actually click through ALL of those pictures in the archive! (Wait, I think that kid is me! j/k! :D ) After about 20 pictures, I have had enough! Sheesh...

Nice link. That's a great place to collect some great photography.

Its interesting to note that even the experts at NASA get it wrong from time to time.This is a story that was widely reported in the U.K. press...The below picture was thought to be a large meteor and NASA took it as there picture of the day...

Apon further investigation it was found to be just an aroeplane vapour trail with an unusual lighting effect




:eek:
