The Best Celestial Pictures of 2016
What smog? Check out these stunners…
Whatever you’re doing over New Year be it sitting on a beach, dancing on a rooftop or hanging out a balcony, chances are you’ll take a reflective moment to look skyward and contemplate 2017. If that is the case and Saigon’s smog isn’t playing ball, it’s lucky that NASA has the space photography game sewn up. This year they've captured some incredible images of the galaxy from burping black holes to exploding supernovas, the SpaceX landing (and explosion) and the discovery of a possible new planet orbiting Proxima Centauri. Just sit back and go wow!
