There are comets that take 200 years, or maybe even thousands, to make one revolution around the Sun. Long-period comets, as they're called, may be as far as 186 billion miles away and most will never approach the Sun in a person's lifetime, but are more common than once thought.

For most of us, the total solar eclipse will last less than two and half minutes. But for one team of scientists, the eclipse will last more than seven minutes. Their secret? Following the shadow of the Moon in two retrofitted WB-57F jet planes. Get the details: http://go.nasa.gov/2eLUsdx #Eclipse2017

Not a rainbow…but a ring-bow. Although the rings lack the many colors of the rainbow, they arc across the sky of Saturn. Take a look: http://go.nasa.gov/2eKyYO6

Surprising Saturn Science! Our Cassini spacecraft continues to make its unprecedented series of dives between Saturn and its rings, scientists are finding some weird observations. The planet’s magnetic field has no discernible tilt, which means the true length of Saturn’s day is still unknown. Discover more: http://go.nasa.gov/2eIYG5J
