On this page you'll find some great wallpaper images, most of which are
science related. All are
800x600 unless otherwise noted. I'll try to update the page at least
weekly! For those who are new to saving wallpaper, simply click on the
image name, then right click on the photo and select "save as wallpaper". If you're using a Mac ...
uh, well ... you're on your own! Have fun!

You can make out details such as Valles Marineris, a canyon much longer and deeper than the Grand Canyon,
and the Hellas Planitia, a basin over 2000 kilometers wide that was likely created by a collision with an asteroid.
Fantastic picture of a Leonid meteor shower!
Moon Over Seattle -
This picture is a time-lapse sequence of the moon rising over Seattle, Washington at night. The final frame was over-exposed, which results in a brilliant moon reflecting off the bay!
