Pluto and It's moon (Charon)



A Hubble view of the "Double Planet" Pluto and Charon. Pluto is to the left and Charon to the right. Because Charon is so close to Pluto, the two worlds are typically blurred together when viewed through ground-based telescopes.

A timed exposure of the Atlantis space shuttle.

The curvature is due to the shuttle travelling into space and moving downrange over the Earth's curvature.

The Sombrero Galaxy in the constellation Virgo. The large bulge in the centre is a supermassive black hole.
It can be easily be seen with amateur telescopes.
