The Universe is vast, and filled with an enormous diversity of planets, stars, galaxies, and clusters of galaxies. There is also mystery, fascination, and things very nearly beyond imagination. Fortunately, there has been a great deal of imagining going on; not to mention an enormous amount of photographing from space and other telescopes. Join us for a tour de force through all the myriad wonders of what has prompted a sense of awe in virtually anyone wondering about it. Combined with the stories - some profound, and a few humorous - it becomes clear why the sky has never been the limit.
