    I can't seem to find any good ambient artists. Do you guys have any suggestions for songs like Brian Eno's?

    I really really don't know anything about Ambient artists... most Ambient music is unmemorable, probably by design.

    However, I do listen to Ambient music to relax at times.

    I suggest you might fire up iTunes and select one of the Ambient streams that are on there, then looking to see who the artist is.

    John Serrie is my favorite. He has done multiple pieces designed for planetariums.

    I started listening to him 15 years ago when I would sit outside under the stars with my Meade Dobsonian.

    Well worth a listen

    X3. I love his music. Somewhat similar is Washed Out

    Some of Jean Michel Jarre's work is ambient (Oxygène is good); For true ambient, atmospheric music I have a bunch by Andrew Lahiff I downloaded free from ArtistServer that I really like. Also, Brian Eno's Apollo is a good ambient/atmostpheric album.
