Countless megabytes of pictures are out there. I've snagged a
variety of these and made up several galleries of photos from
elsewhere than our own planet, reached from the links below.
Many of these are from the Hubble Space Telescope, surely one of the most
amazing of our research machines.
Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Saturn, Jupiter, Neptune, Uranus, and
Pluto, as well as their moons.
Most people my age can remember what they were doing on the day
human beings first set foot on Earth's moon.
The richness of the photographs obtained during flights of
the shuttle is staggering. More recently, the International
Space Station has become one of the more conspicuous sights
in the night or morning skies. I follow the schedule of
sighting opportunities in my vicinity and rush out to see
it pass over.
The links below take you to the major sources I've found for
information about the planets, the Hubble telescope, and the
NASA Public Affairs server is by far the richest
single source I've found for images like these. It in turn
has links to just about everything imaginable in the field.
Welcome to the Planets is collection of photos
from planetary explorer satellites.
The Nine Planets offers solid science. It's designed
to teach you quite a lot about the solar system.
Solar System Live provides an orrery so you can
watch the solar system spin.
Hubble Space Telescope is daily slaving away,
returning image upon image of things we never dreamed of
until this instrument opened the door.
