    Nice collection!! Seems like Space is one of those "themes" that doesn't loose interest.

    I kinda find the sky chock-full of stars stars approach by Apple a bit trite. I don't know if it's because they have used very similar theme for some of the previous OSX versions, or if it's because it reminds me of those starry night animated gif tiled backgrounds I used to use on just about anything I could as a teenager..!

    The ones with epic planet landscapes (spacescapes?) look awesome though.
