Maybe everybody knows about HubbleSite and its amazing gallery pages, but if not, check it out. One-stop (free) shopping for information and many, many spectacular images from the Hubble Space Telescope. Makes me proud to be an optical engineer, and to work with several engineers who made major contributions to the design and fabrication of the Hubble repair optics. My company even received a NASA award (in 1995) for its work on the Hubble and other NASA projects. The image is of the Cat's Eye Nebula (NGC 6543).
