Solar System – The Impressive Photos of Our Cosmic Home

Born about 4.6 billion years ago in the result of a huge collapse of molecular cloud, our Solar System is part of the Milky Way galaxy and it is the cosmic location of Planet Earth and its seven planetary neighbors. Thanks to the advanced and highly sophisticated imaging techniques we now have many pictures of the Solar System, which draw the attention of not only scientists, but also artists and individuals delighted with the unusual and literally “extraterrestrial” forms, shapes and color combinations, found in the Solar System.

In this article we present a collection of photos of the Solar System. This gallery can be treated as the virtual tour to the space, where you can see the images of other planets and formations of the Solar System. At the same time, these images can work as the source of inspiration, exciting human imagination with so many secrets, still hidden in the outer space. Finally, there is particular beauty in these photographic images of the Solar System. This beauty is surrounded with many myths, secrets, and already known facts, and it has some mystic influence on people. The night sky with myriads of stars has always enticed people to find the answer to one of the oldest questions ever: are we the only living beings in this Universe? With this Solar System photography showcase, we welcome you aboard the space ship and invite you for a virtual trip into the world of enigmatic cosmic beauty.
