The Tadpole Galaxy, recently featured in the APOD. I find it gorgeous, and what a background, galaxies like stars.. Don't miss the Full-res

Imagine a second the view from a world somewhere here :

lol, I wish. I've tried once to add relief to SE's galaxies by editing the _side texture, but nothing like the Tadpole Galaxy can be done.
Hopefully some procedural galaxies models will have these kind of shape !

Simulation of the distribution of aerosols in Earth's atmosphere. NASA's caption:

Quote (NASA)
High-resolution global atmospheric modeling provides a unique tool to study the role of weather within Earth's climate system. The Goddard Earth Observing System Model, Version 5 (GEOS-5) is capable of simulating worldwide weather at resolutions of 10 to 3.5 kilometers (km).

This portrait of global aerosols was produced by a GEOS-5 simulation at a 10-kilometer resolution. Dust (red) is lifted from the surface, sea salt (blue) swirls inside cyclones, smoke (green) rises from fires, and sulfate particles (white) stream from volcanoes and fossil fuel emissions.

Original link: http://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/imagegallery/image_feature_2393.html

An Earth-science thread should be created for stuff like this, but for the moment I'll post it here.

UPDATE: Video version (recommended)

HarbingerDawn, it is difficult to believe that these dwarf galaxies are like this, a blob of light with faint edges, or maybe just a street light floating in the void.

Messier 60 is no dwarf galaxy, it is a giant elliptical galaxy much larger than the Milky Way, with a supermassive black hole of 4.5 billion (4.5·109) solar masses smile
