Wired has a list of the best space photos of the year and they are truly incredible. 2013 was a great year for science and space especially and these photographs reflect that.
We’re celebrating with a gallery of our favorites from among the 365 we hand-picked every day this year. Highlights include young stars being born in the Large Magellanic Cloud, new views of both the Andromeda Galaxy and Horsehead Nebula, and the achingly beautiful picture of Saturn above. Here’s to another amazing year of space photos and the never-ending wonder of the universe.
