Top 10 Astronomy Pictures of 2006 December 31, 2006

Posted by gordonwatts in science.

Bad Astronomy has them up. The picture of Saturn, taken from the Cassini space craft is amazing (apparently it is 165 images stitched together). My favorite, however, is the ISS and the space shuttle passing in front of the sun. Exposure length: 1/8000th of a second.
