Great astrophotographies – August 2008


The month of August was a chance for many people in Asia to witness a total lunar eclipse and the occasion for NASA’s astronomy picture of the day to focus on the phenomenon.

This gave us two magnificent pictures, including the crown of the sun, pictured left. But this month’s selection also includes photos of beautiful nebulae.

As usual with my previous posts you will find in today’s article the links to the very best photographies featured this month on the APOD.

Here is my selection, hope you will enjoy it :
