What happens when the Sun Earth and Moon line up (in that order)? Do people (or animals) get crazy? Commit more crimes? The Moon always shows us the same face, but there’s only one instant when the Moon is truly “Full.” @DavidSkyBrody explains.

The curly string is about 100,000 light-years long and sports blue "pearls" — actually huge young star clusters — every 3,000 light-years along the way, researchers said. You can zoom in on the beautiful structure, and learn more about it, in this new Hub

Recent photos snapped by the European Space Agency's Rosetta spacecraft suggest that its target comet, known as 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, is a lumpy object sporting three large structures, or perhaps a deep hole.

In the universe of Bell's Brewery, Mars is a strong brew, Uranus a crafty potion mix and Mercury a nimble beer. Such is the thinking behind "The Planets" series of beers that Bell's is pioneering this August.

Incrível as fotos, a Galáxia de Andrômeda está em uma posição favorável por aqui. Estou esperando melhorar o tempo, para apontar o meu telescópio.

“Parent satellite” Prox-1 will watch its offspring, LightSail-1, as it deploys 32 sq. meters of Kapton polymide fabric in an act of cosmic origami in reverse.

Glad I have been able to contribute support for this project.  Light sails have the potential to open up the solar system to missions that otherwise would not be practical.

On 12 July, 10 August and 9 September 2014, a full moon will occur when the satellite is closest to Earth in orbit. Called a ‘perigee moon’ its brightness is increased and size enlarged due to proximity to Earthbound skywatchers.
