High-Resolution Space Photos

I’m a sucker for crisp, clear space photography — my kids and I spend an inordinate amount of time digging into Google Earth — so I was happy to stumble upon this old 2009 blog post with 35 high-resolution astronomy images (from Wikimedia) that are in the public domain. Make sure you click the high-resolution links. Incredible detail in these.
