Astronomy Pictures of the Year

480_APOY

The editors of the Astronomy Picture of the Day have listed their 12 favorite images of 2007.
There was certainly no shortage of breathtaking images to choose from -- with robotic cameras orbiting Mars and rolling around its surface, the Cassini spacecraft at Saturn, space telescopes exploring the cosmos, and ground-based imaging with increasingly sophisticated hardware and software.

One of those selected was this image of the Barred Spiral Galaxy NGC 1672. Link -via Bad Astronomy Blog
