This part is the most important part of the site, and here you will find all the collected images from various space research centers (especially NASA) or terrestrial or spatial observation center such as the Hubble telescope. The goal of this site is above all to constitute the largest image bank of our universe available via easy navigation of type “tree”, ie the database is first of all a folder “Universe” Regrouping constellations gathering galaxies themselves like our Milky Way, within this folder “Milky Way” is a folder “Our solar system” containing itself files on each of the planets of our solar system. All the classification of images is organized in this way and is not limited to the Milky Way.

Archive images of our observable universe is available with three different file Explorers:

Some of the images hosted here weigh extremely heavy (several hundred MB). These images won’t display in Minigal Nano or H5AI or SFPG. They are nonetheless downloadable by different means (see FAQ)
