Lots to marvel about.

A long exposure shot of the Space Shuttle Endeavour shows streaks of city light caused by the earth whizzing by at 17,000mph below.

The sun belched out a billion tons of material only to have it mostly fall back on its surface.

And finally a star blew up in the whirlpool galaxy. Boom: from nothing to something (actually, pretty much exactly that in reverse) in two days.
