It’s the Astronomy Picture of the Day, a NASA initiative that publishes impressive astronomical images / photos in a daily basis, including comments from professional scientists. You know, an astronomical image is worth a thousand horoscope words.

Update — 1 minute later: I forgot to say you also have an official RSS feed for the entries.
