Ever try to imagine what cities on other planets or moons might look like? Universe Today reader Alan Lipkin put his imagination to work for this week’s edition of Astro Art. But do you recognize the different images Alan Photoshopped together to create this very futuristic city? “It is Saturn’s moon Phoebe with New York City inserted in the craters Jason and Erginus,” Alan revealed. Additionally, a portion of the Wild Duck Cluster is the backdrop.

Readers may remember that Alan was the original inspiration for Astro Art of the Week with this submission here.

If you’ve got a space or astronomy image you’ve created and would like to share it, submit it to Nancy . We’re also still looking for a better title than “Astro Art of the Week” — so if you have any suggestions for something a little more catchy, post your idea in the comments.
