Astronomy and Valentine's Day

Astronomy and Valentine's Day ..............??? Valentine's Day is associated with flowers and chocolates ....... but if you love someone who is interested in astronomy then here are few pics to win his/her heart.



This love from Mars is a heart shaped pit formed by collapse within a straight walled trough known as graben. The pic is send by Mars Orbiter Camera ( MOC).


Chandra image is of young star cluster NGC 346 which highlights a heart- shaped cloud of a 8 million-degree celsius gas in the central region.



Asteroid Eros mythical name is fitting of the holiday. It was imaged by Near Earth Asteroid Rendezvous Spacecraft.


Envisat picks out a heart from the arid landscape of Africa's Sahara. This is a multi-temporal Advanced Synthetic Aperture Radar (ASAR) image of the central coast of Mauritania in West Africa .

We are celebrating Valentine' day on our Earth today but we should not forget that love is found every where . Our Universe is after all such a loving place.
Have an Astronomical Valentine's Day !!!

Some wonderful images, most interestingly they are natural just like our real heart, not like those fake heart. However, I don't believe in Valentine Days. I never think, love need a day to express. It's just another corporate day where corporate house make millions by using peoples emotions.
