Watch this amazing movie of Neptune and Triton (and a few errant asteroids) taken by the Kepler telescope in its K2 phase.
NASA's Kepler spacecraft, known for its planet-hunting prowess of other stars, is also studying solar system objects. In its new K2 mission, Neptune and two of its moons, Triton and Nereid, have been imaged.

For the Musk fans. Drills down to why these things are important to be doing.
When you pick up the phone, you don't expect Elon Musk to be on the other line.

Eyepieces work real nice with 6m telescopes.
On our first night on-sky in 2015A, Clio wasn't quite ready to mount on the telescope. We also needed to test operating the AO system with a different camera (Clio's entrance window is the dichroic which sends light to the Pyramid and VisAO), since there are several new instrument concepts in ...

Story
Introduction
I am an astronomer at NASA's Ames Research Center in California.  I primarily study the atmospheres of extrasolar giant planets, brown dwarfs, and solar system giant planets. (Note that the opinions I express are my own and not those of NASA.)

I have served on multiple committees that offer advice to NASA on topics ranging from the best strategies to study extrasolar planets, to exoplanet-detecting telescope design, to the optimal outer solar system exploration strategy. I currently serve on the "Science and Technology Definition Team" for the proposed "Exo-C" space-based coronagraph telescope.

On Google+ my public posts tend to be articles or items that have caught my eye, mostly regarding extrasolar planets and brown dwarfs.  I don't aim to provide a content stream.
Bragging rights
My "progeny" include over 120 referred scientific papers with over 7,500 citations, half a dozen graduate students with degrees, and (saving the best for last) 2 daughters. As an undergraduate I 'helped' Gene and Carolyn Shoemaker discover an asteroid which they kindly allowed me to help name after my father, Denzil Marley.

My daughter was in St. Andrews for her 18th birthday while my wife and I were in the U.S. I contacted St. Andrews Florist by email and Gail responded almost immediately. We emailed back and forth several times to fine tune an arrangement for my daughter. The service was prompt, friendly and flexible and the arrangement, with chocolates and a balloon, was delivered on time. Gail event sent some photos of everything before delivery so I knew just what we paid for. I was very happy with the service and will definitely be contacting Gail again when its time to send flowers to St. Andrews.

Aardvark went well above and beyond my expectations in planning and delivering a fantastic safari vacation for my family. Victoria listened to my description of what I was looking for and presented a variety of options and helped us navigate the possibilities. The final trip was better than we could have imagined and I will be recommending Aardvark to my friends.
