For a More Cosmic Perspective...

Exams are over, and it's finally time to relax and to take in the peace and beauty of winter landscapes and the universe beyond law books. Some of the most stunning natural formations are those photographed in outer space, as this recent "Astronomy Picture of the Day" from the NASA image gallery demonstrates. Cosmic phenomena such as the Northern Lights (aurora borealis) also change earthly landscapes into spectacular displays. Take some time to enjoy more of the breathtaking views from NASA's Astronomy Picture of the Day Archive.
