OS X Mountain Lion Galaxy Wallpaper

Apple has a knack for picking gorgeous desktop wallpapers, and the all new OS X Mountain Lion is no exception. As you’ve undoubtedly seen in the developer preview information and screen shots, the new default wallpaper is another beautiful space themed image of a swirling blue galaxy (maybe a white dwarf, actually), a bit more subtle than the Andromeda galaxy wallpaper found in OS X Lion. It’s offered as a whopping 3200×2000 pixel image and you can download it below:

Even if you can’t can’t run the Dev Preview, you can at least grab the new wallpaper and Messages beta and pretend to run the latest OS X. Developers can download the Developer Preview now, and OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion will be released this summer.

Thanks Daryl

    White dwarfs are stars, not galaxies.

    The no of this galaxy is NGC 3190, 80 million light years away from us!

    Indeed, NGC 3190.

    In the Hickson 44 Group, located near the constellation Leo (the Lion).

    I think Apple graphics people did a fine job with this one.

    Best of the space themed Apple OS X desktop wallpapers, in my opinion.
