Does anyone know of any sources on the web of public domain space images? (Do they even exist?)

I'm just trying to put together a tiling starfield texture, and I'd like to 'sample' a few star formations from some real pics, and assemble a texture from them. My attempts to lay down pixels, and use white drop shadows behind them aren't working so well.

Thanks for the link.

If you don't use the pics for commercial purposes you can simply ask the authors/copyright owners for a permission. I'm very positive that you will get an official permission from most if not all of them.

Hmm, turns out most NASA images can be used however you want including for commercial purposes, with a few exceptions for recognizable faces and logos. But after a bit of experimentation just sizing down some images into 512x512 and renering with them, they kind of clash with the style of the other game objects.

Guess I'll look into some good starfield tutorials.
