Astronomy Picture of the Day
http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/astropix.html

"Astronomy Picture of the Day" is the name of a website hosted by NASA. As its name implies, a new astronomy picture, along with a short description of its content, is uploaded to it every single day. Check it out. Thumbsup

You can browse the website's archive here (it goes back to 1995!).

I've had that off and on as a homepage on some browsers of mine for 7 years or so now. My high school astronomy teacher showed it to us
