Space landscapes celebrate the lunar and solar eclipse

A lunar eclipse occurs when the Sun, Earth and Moon are in exact alignment with one another, where the Sun’s rays are blocked from shining upon the moon by the Earth, which stands between the two. There is always a full moon during a lunar eclipse. A solar eclipse, from Earth, can be seen as a bright ray of fire as the Moon appears to cover the Sun. Now both of these astronomical events will be occurring within mere weeks of another (lunar on June 26, 2010 and solar on July 11, 2010), creating a huge shift in the electro-magnetic energy field that effects every Earthling.

Fantasy and Science Fiction artists have been enamored by the stars, planets, the Moon and the Sun for ages, creating such incredible depictions of the universe and faraway worlds that inspire even the most reality-driven man to use his imagination.

In honor of these symbolic elements that remind us just how small we are in this universe, here are some of my favorite pieces of art.
