A selection from National Geographic's best space pictures of 2010: An airplane is silhouetted against the first solar eclipse of the decade, seen over Bangkok, Thailand, in January. A colorful, craggy column of dust and gas dubbed the Mystic Mountain taken from the Hubble Space Telescope. Mars shines like a bright red star over a "moonbow" in fog surrounding Hawaii's Haleakala volcano in January. Patches of southern Australia's shallow Lake Eyre seem to form a grimacing face in an August 2006 satellite picture.
