wealth of pretty pictures. This site provides a new pretty picture
(along with an explanation) every day!
awesome view of Saturn, its rings, and their shadows as seen by Cassini.

moons. Ideal if you want an introduction to this locale or that.
Views of the Solar System

- Bad Astronomy
Phil Plait uses this site to clear up some common misconceptions in
astronomy. He also points out bad astronomy in movies - like being able
to hear explosions in space - and debunks some popular hoaxes. He does
an especially good job with a point-by-point rebuttal of the "Moon
landing was a hoax" hoax. (We did land on the moon!)
