This is that time of the month: the one for me to present my selection of the best pictures of the NASA’s Astronomy Picture of the Day (APOD). I would like to give this a special emphasis on Mars, as I finished the Martian Trilogy.
As always, this month was packed with beautiful images and it was very difficult to select just twelve. I am absolutely amazed at how many splendors can be seen at night.
For the second selection of astrophotographies of 2009 I would like to propose you the thumbnails of the images that caught my attention and not the usual links with plain boring text.
Here is my selection of pictures. For the full size, please check the APOD website.
