Outta this world

While I was scanning through my digital pics tonight, I ran across some nice astronomy shots taken by a friend of mine several years ago. Dave is an astronomer by education and avocation, and takes some pretty interesting photos of eclipses, comets, etc.

You will notice that I've added a picture in my sidebar. Dave took this amazing shot of a total solar eclipse in 1998, and I've used it as desktop wallpaper quite a bit. There's a higher res version here. If you click on the picture itself, you will be looking at an animation showing the progression of the eclipse. To browse the complete site, click on the link under the picture.
