Where to Find Astronomy Videos And Photo Galleries Online


I have another great guest post from education writer Karen Schweitzer. Karen is the About.com Guide to Business School. She also writes about pharmacy technician certification for PharmacyTechnicianCertification.com.



Browsing astronomy video and photo galleries is a great way to learn more about space and get a look at things you might otherwise never see. The following ten sites host thousands of videos and images for your viewing pleasure.



Space.com Video Collection - Space.com has assembled hundreds of astronomy videos from around the web and put them in one easy-to-access collection. More than 500 videos can be view directly in Space.com's video player.



ScienceDaily Video Collection - ScienceDaily, a site that reports on the latest science news, hosts a large selection of astronomy videos. Videos include clips of the moon, planets, asteroids, meteors, stars, black holes, space exploration, and much more.



Sixty Symbols Video Collection - Created by the University of Nottingham, Sixty Symbols provides an interesting library of videos about the symbols of physics and astronomy. The site also links to their Flickr photo collection.





Discovery.com Video Collection - Discovery.com has an excellent collection of videos for space and science enthusiasts. The videos feature the top 10 greatest discoveries in astronomy.


National Geographic Video Collection - National Geographic offers dozens of high-quality space videos in their online science video collection. Videos cover everything from the latest news in space and shuttle missions to forces of nature.


NASA Image Gallery - NASA offers a wide range of videos and images on their site. Photos include images from the Kennedy Space Center, NASA aircraft, aeronautics facilities, and research centers. Visitors can browse collections or search for images using NASA's image exchange engine.


Hubble Gallery - The Hubble Site offers a huge selection of images captured by the Hubble Space Telescope. Site visitors can browse individual images, search albums, or tour entire image galleries.




Astronomy Magazine's Online Reader Gallery - Astronomy Magazine posts a wide range of images snapped by astrophotographers from around the world. Registered members can leave comments on the images or submit their own photo. Image categories include the sun and moon, comets, star clusters, galaxies, and nebulae.

NOAO Image Gallery - This site features pictures taken with the facilities of the National Optical Astronomy Observatory (NOAO). The gallery includes images of the sun, moon, stars, solar system, nebulae, galaxies, telescopes, and more.


APOD Archives - Created by Robert Nemiroff and Jerry Bonnell, Astronomy Picture of the Day (APOD) features the largest collection of annotated astronomy images on the web. Archives include images that have been posted daily from 1995 to present day.


Thanks a lot Karen, I little update about me, I have been very fortunate to hook up with some talented musicians and am getting back to creating music with the main goal of putting a CD of originals together within the year, lot easier to write stuff when you understand more about who you are, very exciting times, and I Thank God for this.

I will be getting back into posting more regularly in the future, thanks for all your kind comments and emails, you have all been just super.

All those links are nice, but YOUR images are the best. ;-)

Good luck with the music! Someday I hope to make music again. It's all just time and priorities, really.

sexylegsandbody said...

Hi, great links, very interesting, I will make sure I visit some of them.
Thanks for sharing, hope your weekend is going great.
Colin.

Bob Johnson said...

Thanks Marvin, getting back into music has been a God send, everything is fitting together nicely. Cool you write music, and you are right, all about priorities.

Bob Johnson said...

Thanks Colin, my weekend is super, hope the same for you.

The Ancient Digger said...

These are wonderful resources that I have to check out. I am heading out to the space.com site first.

How are you by the way? I had no idea you were back.

Bob Johnson said...

Hi Ancient Digger, kind of back, back and forth here but expect to come back full time, thanks for dropping by.

Megaan Austin said...

I would like to know whether you are interested in adding my blog in your blog list.

Max Coutinho said...

Hi Bob :D!

First of all, I'd like to thank Karen for her suggestions (they are excellent).

Second, you have hidden talents, mate! Let us know when that CD is released, ok?
I couldn't agree with you more: when we know ourselves (who we are, where we want to go) everything in life flows out much much better.

Bob, we miss you, man; but at the same time I wish to tell you to keep on doing your thing and may God bless you!

Cheers

Bob Johnson said...

Thanks and sure Megaan, you're added.

Bob Johnson said...

Hey Max, thanks for everything, I will let you know about the cd, thanks again.

Anna said...

Hey Bob did I read this properly, you are into music now, lol. My, my you got many hidden talents my friend. Your blog was always the best educational tool for me, and your photos were and will be always amazing. When you get your music blog going, lol, let me know? May be I start accordion-ing & piano-ing again too, or may be I leave this to Matthew. Hope all is well otherwise, Anna :)

Tatiana said...

Some great links you posted - thanks Bob, and definitely let us know when the disk is ready ;)

Astro-Nuts said...

I forgot to leave a comment. Once again a good, informative post. I hadn't ever been to a couple of those sites.

Astro-Nuts said...

Once again, a good informative post. I hadn't ever been a couple of those sites. Interesting stuff.

Anne Vis said...

Thanks for sharing, Bob! I started a series of Hubble inspired artwork but had not seen the link you put up! :-)

Bob Johnson said...

Hi Anna, I have been into music for years, just getting full into it again and lots of fun, didn't know you played keyboards, cool. Everything is great here thanks for asking.

Bob Johnson said...

Hey Tatiana, I sure will, good to hear from you.

Bob Johnson said...

Thanks Colin.

Bob Johnson said...

Cool Anne, I'll have to come over for a look.

Will said...

You know Bob I still drop by to see your amazing photo creations. Always glad when a pop over reveals a new post to read and new images to marvel at. A musician too. Did not know that. Will you be selling CD's?

kRiZ cPEc said...

just pop by, have a great weekend

SWUBIRD said...

Bob:

Hey, putting up all of those super links was a fantastic idea. Like an encylopedia (Bobapedia) of astronomy links.

Glad to hear you're doing what you love. Writing, music, publishing a CD. Wow! I wonder what's going to happen next in your interesting life?

I told you that a similar thing happened to me several, several years as ago. After I got over the initial impact (and you know impacts can kill dinosaurs), instead of a meteor from hell it turned out to be a gift from Heaven.

Can't wait to hear you tunes.

Happy trails.

Bob Johnson said...

Thanks kRiZ

Bob Johnson said...

For sure swubird, turning tragedy into good, thanks for dropping by my friend.

AngelBaby said...

I just stopped by to say hello and see how you are because I haven't seen you around lately. I hope you are alright and all is well.

Have a wonderful day!

Love and Blessings,
AngelBaby

Bob Johnson said...

All is well AngelBaby, hope everything is going good for you and thanks for dropping by.

Shinade said...

I agree with Marvin my old friend. I love your images!! How the heck are you Bob?

I just started back this past week. But, I thought about you this summer.

I was on the road with Walter and we were all Canada almost all summer. Even so I still have never seen the Northern Lights!!

Walter parked in remote areas as much as possible and we looked and watched but they never appeared for me.

He sees them all the time. Maybe only certain people get to have a look and I am not on that list!

Thanks for dropping by. It is so good to be back and getting in touch with my old friends!!
Jackie:-)
