Astronomy Picture Of the Day presents a new astronomical picture every day, with some explanations. I wanted to use these images as my screensaver but the RSS feed didn’t provide the URL to the high resolution version of the images.
This script parses the page to find the title of the picture and the url of the hi-res image and stores the picture in a folder. It also adds the title of the image at the top.
I moved the code to github: https://github.com/chrislad/ImageScrappers
