FROSTY SLOPES ON MARS This image of an area on the surface of Mars shows frosted gullies on a south-facing slope within a crater.

This image of the reflection nebula Messier 78 in Orion was captured using the Wide Field Imager camera on the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at the La Silla Observatory, Chile. This colour picture was created from many monochrome exposures taken through blue, yellow/green and red filters, supplemented by exposures through a filter that isolates light from glowing hydrogen gas.

Io Casts Shadow on Jupiter. The three snapshots of the volcanic moon rounding Jupiter were taken over a 1.8-hour time span. Io is roughly the size of Earths moon but 2,000 times farther away. In two of the images, Io appears to be skimming Jupiter's cloud tops, but its actually 310, 000 miles (500,000 kilometres) away. Io zips around Jupiter in 1.8 days, whereas the moon circles Earth every 28 days.
