Great astrophotographies – November 2009

sunearthpanel_sts129_128This is time for me to present my selection of the best pictures of the NASA’s Astronomy Picture of the Day (APOD). As always, this month was packed with beautiful images. It was as always difficult to select just ten.

On this month’s picture, the NASA noted : “The Sun, a crescent Earth, and the long arm of a solar panel were all visible outside a window when the Space Shuttle Atlantis visited the orbiting outpost last week.”

I particularly like this picture as we can see our planet seen from outter space – with the thin atmosphere – the ISS and its many solar panels and to finish, our star.

Here is this month’s selection :

I hope you enjoyed this selection.
