There is a ton of creativity behind Christopher Jonassen's revelation that the bottom of frying pans can often look a lot like planets in space, and this updated collection of his photos proves just how surprisingly true this fact really is.

Through the use of a black background, some basic lighting and a camera, Christopher Jonassen turns what is otherwise an everyday household object into art that you could swear was actually a picture of a space-faring planet. From dull gray to flaming red space, from smooth to gnarled and scarred, each picture reflects a deceptively realistic depiction of astronomical bodies that is simultaneously captivating and beautiful.

When it comes to seeing hidden potential in regular objects, Christopher Jonassen definitely takes the prize.
