Alien worlds through artist's eyes (http://www.space.com/scienceastronomy/alien_worlds_030429-1.html)

The art is gorgeous, but I particularly like the image at the end of what our solar system might look like through an infrared telescope from a long ways away.

The February episode of The Sky At Night (http://www.bbc.co.uk/science/space/spaceguide/skyatnight/proginfo.shtml) was about astro art. It was very good. There's a small gallery (http://www.bbc.co.uk/science/space/spaceguide/skyatnight/artgallery.shtml) of some good work. It's a shame that most producers of sci-fi series don't choose to consult them. They make space look far more interesting than it is made to appear on programmes like Enterprise.

Loved the Waterworld pic from Glom's link--despite Kevin Costner's movie of the same name.

The "Volcano on Venus" picture has sunlight coming through the clouds. :o Oh, well, looks pretty anyway.
