We got 2 amazing photos of last night's extremely young moon! This one is from Brett Joseph in Tucson, Arizona ... a young moon less than 24 hours from new ... super tough to see from this hemisphere at this time of year! Congratulations, Brett!

A new simulation by scientists lets you witness supermassive black holes about to collide. One shows them from outside the system, just 40 orbits from merging. The other places you in their midst. Watch here: http://bit.ly/2PdpZlW πŸ‘€πŸ•³
