Posted by Catherine Gaffney,

Y’know those breezy summer days when you lie on the grass and cloudgaze, spotting dinosaurs, lampshades, oceans and strange faces with a variety of expressions? Well, Chris Keegan does a very long-distance version of this. We’re talking light years. Digitally manipulating images found by NASA’s Chandra X-Ray Observatory, Keegan’s Celestial Artworks feature all sorts of creatures built of the stars, space-clouds and various naturally-occuring visuals found far, far away.
