Picture of the day

Phil Plait of the Bad Astronomy blog comes up with a look at our solar system through is favorite pictures of the planets. From the Sun (which isn't a planet) to world famous Exoplanet Fomalhaut B, he goes through his favorite photos and why he likes them/what they mean to astronomy/science/the world.

A nice diversion from the brain melting heat. Below, his planet chart and "Earth" as captured by the European Space Agency's Rosetta probe.
