Fake Night Sky
I'm still a devotee of the Astronomy Picture of the Day website but these are not from there. These are three postcards from the Hayden Planetarium of the American Museum of Natural History in New York. It's the top picture which I really liked: it seems so abstract and evocative. The two pictures below are also interesting I suppose but the interior shot mostly since it turns out to be a photograph of a model (which took two years to build) of the planetarium and not a picture of the actual instrument at all! The place itself is still going strong.
