I really like space pictures, and today there are two new good ones!  The first comes courtesy of the NASA’s Planck mission, which launched in May 2009.  It shows the Milky Way’s spiral disk and surrounding dusk clouds.

This second image was taken by the Cassini spacecraft. It shows Saturn’s rings from a view not normally visible from Earth.
