Kepler Orrery IV
The exoplanet hunting Kepler mission's total for candidate and confirmed multiple planet systems stands at 1,705 worlds in orbit around 685 distant stars. Put all of those exoplanet orbits on the same scale and follow their relative orbital motions to get Kepler Orrery IV.

To make the planets visible, their sizes aren't shown to scale. But orbits of the planets in the Solar System (dashed lines) are included to scale in the animation. Of course, Kepler uses planetary transits to detect exoplanets, looking for a slight dimming of light as the planet crosses in front of its star.

In the time compressed animation, Kepler's multiplanet system orbits are all oriented to put observed transits at the three o'clock position. The dervish-like movements highlight a stark contrast between most Kepler-discovered exoplanetary systems and our own. The color code indicates a planet's estimated equilibrium surface temperature based on its orbit size and parent star.ย

Why stars seem brighter this time of year
From Earthsky: As seen during Northern Hemisphere winter (or Southern Hemisphere summer), the stars seem brighter. Why? Itโ€™s partly because โ€“ on December, January and February evenings โ€“ the part of Earth youโ€™re standing on is facing into the spiral arm of the galaxy to which our sun belongs.

The leaders controlling the US surveillance apparatus canโ€™t agree on encryption. FBI Director Comey has hysterically characterized it as a safe haven for evil-doers. A high-ranking Department of Justice official insisted that encryption could cause a child to die. Meanwhile, the National Security Agencyโ€™s leaders are extremely chill about encryptionโ€”which is terrifying.

These findings could shed light on the ways scientists might detect evidence of oxygen, a potential sign of life, on distant planets.๏ปฟ
Underwater microorganisms found in Antarctica create "oxygen oases" that might give scientists clues about how the planet developed an oxygen-rich atmosphere.

Located on the celestial equator, Orion is only visible part of the year. So #lookup this January and February. ๏ปฟ
Step outside on any evening this month and look toward the south. You will see one of the best-loved constellations, Orion the Hunter, surrounded by a circle of six brilliant stars.
