A month in space-images captured by telescopes, probes and astronauts over the past month.

The Guardian’s  pick of the month’s best space-related imagery includes the birth of a star that will one day be 100 times the mass of the sun, lava flows from the largest volcano in the solar system, a picture of Earth from 1.44bn kilometres away and plans for the next Mars rover.

A Month in Space: Cassini’s Pale Blue Dot

No, that little blue dot is not dropped pixels on your screen, it’s a picture of Earth taken from some 1.44bn kilometres away on 19 July by the wide-angle camera on the international Cassini spacecraft. It also captures Saturn’s F, G and E rings. If your screen is good, you may be able to make out our moon.
