Caturday’s Astronomy Pix is a weekly installment, published each weekend with links to each daily entry on NASA’s website Astronomy Picture of the Day. I hope you enjoy looking at these often breathtaking images as much as I do.

About Troy Loy

I seek to learn through this site and others how to better my ability as a person and my skill at using my reason and understanding to best effect. I do fractal artwork as a hobby, and I'm working to develop it to professional levels, though I've a bit to go till I reach that degree of skill! This is a crazy world we're in, but maybe I can do a little, if only that, to make it a bit more sane than it otherwise would be.

  1. I love the Colorado picture! I got to spend a day at the Boulder glider port back in the mid-90s. The experienced pilots head for the “standing wave” of lift that helps to create these lenticular clouds. They actually dress in very warm clothes and take supplemental oxygen since flights over 20,000 feet are common. It really is remarkable to see.
