Great astrophotographies – March 2009

sn94d_highz_big_800This 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.

The picture above shows a supernova that occurred fifteen years ago next to a beautiful galaxy. You will find in today’s post the list of the other images that caught my attention.
