Today's Astronomy Picture of the Day is a processed image from the Hubble Space Telescope (there seems to be quite an industry of "amateur" astronomers working with data from professional instruments!) of NGC 1566, a face-on spiral in the constellation of Dorado (the "Dolphinfish"). Another beautiful spiral with dust lanes, blue clusters and red star-forming regions! I could look at these for hours and hours.
