Science: Astronomy Picture of the Day (42(!!!) Wallpapers)

These wallpapers are a bit special, because they are not modified at all, I only took a few pictures from THIS site, and cut them in the right size to be a wallpaper (almost all are 1280x800). So it's a bit inappropriate to say that they are my creations, because my work wasn't much, but the images are really beautiful, so I wanted to share them anyway! If you click on the title of the wall, you can visit the page with the explanation of the image, to understand what we're watching! ;)

Questi wallpaper sono un po' speciali, perché non li ho modificati per niente, ho solo preso alune immagini da QUESTO sito, e le ho tagliare nelle giuste dimensioni per essere un wallpaper (quasi tutti sono 1280x800). Quin è un po' inappropriato dire che sono mie creazioni, perché non c'ho messo molto di mio, ma le immagini sono veramente belle, così ho voluto condividerle lo stesso! Se cliccate sui titoli dei wallpaper potete visitare la pagina con la spiegazione dell'immagine, per capire cosa stiamo guardando (solo in inglese, però!)! ;)
