HubbleSite — the public website of the Hubble Space Telescope — just won a Webby, which delights me. Moreso, I was delighted by their (new-to-me) Wall Murals gallery section, where they offer not just large-format downloads to print and hang on the wall, but full instructions on how to go about it, tips for printing and even framing! The first mural offered (at two sizes, at that!) is of the Carina Nebula, home of Eta Carinae, in color as well as black and white. Both are amazingly striking, and I hope this isn’t the last image they offer at this size!
I’ve been planning to take the large-format images I’ve downloaded and print them on giclée canvas (for stretching and hanging), but I like this idea of pieced murals just as well. Neat, neat neat neat!
