Introduction

Welcome to AstroPix, the website that makes finding the right astronomy image easier than ever!

Are you looking for astronomical imagery, artwork, or charts? Visit AstroPix! This easy-to-search website contains thousands of images collected from telescopes on the ground and in space, all under a single unified interface.

Our goal is to bring you the best public imagery that has been prepared by professionals at research observatories. AstroPix displays images in a flexible format that provides a lot of information in an easy-to-read graphical format. Subject matter, source names, distances, and color assignments are all presented on their own sections of the page, some with graphical widgets that make it easier to understand what the image is about.

Many of the astronomical images can be displayed in a WorldWide Telescope browser window that shows where they fall in the sky.

Please note the collection does not include access to the full catalog of science data collected by these facilities, images that appear only in professional research publications, or any of the wealth of imagery from private and amateur observatories.
