Thanks to Henry Cate of Why Homeschool for pointing me in the direction of this fantastic website Astronomy Picture of The Day .

As I have said before, my son has a never ending fascination with space, and because of the images shown here we have a new discussion every day.

These photos if not for any other reason than total awe, are a wonderful way to start your day. Happy Earth Day to all!

You are welcome. I am always glad to share good sites.

I like to look at their calendar
site, the month views give thumbnail pictures so you can see a whole bunch quickly.

Astronomy is one of the best ways to get kids 'hooked' on science - especially stunners like that pic!

Yay for Earth Day! It's-Katie-Last Earth Day is when we went to the little gravel trail in the neighborhood and saw the orange fungus on the fallen tree brances.
