APOD - Astronomy Picture Of the Day | the NASA - PHOTOS

APOD - Astronomy Picture Of the Day | the NASA - PHOTOS | Looks -Pictures, Images, Visual Languages | Scoop.it
A different astronomy and space science
related image is featured each day, along with a brief explanation.
Monica MIRZA's insight:

And here's how I've just learnt the name of Jupiter's moon : Europa (accordingly to the APOD website, the "Gibbous" moon).

I keep on feeling awe-struck each time I contemplate the NASA pics : they make me travel -I think they also may well help us realize we're so much smaller than what we sometimes claim ;)

The photo above was yesterday's display : you may either visit /follow @apod 's Twitter account, or you simply change the date at the end of their web page hyperlink address... your choice :-)

Super Moon of March 2011 | 'Photos in the Wild'

Super Moon of March 2011 | 'Photos in the Wild' | Looks -Pictures, Images, Visual Languages | Scoop.it

"This is a photograph of the March 2011 Super Moon. It was taken with a Nikon D90 body and a Phoenix mirror lens set at 650mm. This photo was hand held captured. [...] The size and brightness of an object follows an inverse-square law, which means that a full moon at perigee is 12% larger and brighter than an average full moon. [...]" | Alan S. Hochman

Thanks to Larry Ferlazzo's tweet [ http://bit.ly/SDRLUe ] I started viewing several NBCnews site pages this morning... and happened to discover this one.

It displays various kinds of illustrations related to space . Help yourself & pick some up in diverse categories :

- web extra videos ;

- eclipse images ;

- series of photos illustrating space history...

… and more !

These might well help illustrate ESL-EFL lessons for science series studesnts as they focus on the science & space field.

             … A feast for the eyes :o)
