What can I do with these images?
Many of us have empty walls in our homes or offices asking for some attractive & amazing decoration that will be the life of the party or office...
These unique, bright and real (not art - reality) set of deep space images based on top space technology (The Hubble satellites etc) can be combined in a SET to decorate a wall. Just choose a variety of sizes and the one you like the most being the largest acrylic print. And they will last forever!
This many look like an ordinary B&W photo of stars - but far from it.
It was composed by the Hubble in space by improving the base image with hundreds of hours in hundreds of rounds around the Earth - many, many hours of light were needed to expose the plate for very, very distant Galaxies. Now the gravitational pull even bends the light of the meteors. The incredible part is that for us these are centimeters of space!
Art is affixed to a thick protective acrylic block giving a three dimensional appearance. A french cleat is attached to the back for easy hanging. Care instructions: Wipe clean with a damp cloth.
The stunningly beautiful galaxy cluster Abell 370 contains an astounding assortment of several hundred galaxies tied together by the mutual pull of gravity.
Located approximately four billion light years away in the constellation Cetus, the Sea Monster, this immense cluster is a rich mix of a variety of galaxy shapes.
Entangled among the galaxies are thin, white trails that look like curved or S-shaped streaks. These are trails from asteroids that reside, on average, only about 260 million kilometers from Earth – right around the corner in astronomical terms. The trails appear in multiple Hubble exposures that have been combined into one image. Of the 22 total asteroid sightings for this field, five are unique objects. These asteroids are so faint that they were not previously identified.
The asteroid trails look curved due to an observational effect called parallax. As Hubble orbits around Earth, an asteroid will appear to move along an arc with respect to the vastly more distant background stars and galaxies. The motion of Earth around the Sun, and the motion of the asteroids along their orbits, are other contributing factors to the apparent skewing of asteroid paths.
