Data from #NASA’s Cassini #spacecraft has revealed what appear to be giant dust storms in equatorial regions of Saturn’s moon Titan. The discovery, described in a paper published on Sept. 24 in Nature Geoscience, makes Titan the third #SolarSystem body, in addition to #Earth and #Mars, where dust storms have been observed.

Just over a month into its mission, #NASA’s #ParkerSolarProbe has returned first-light data from each of its four instrument suites. These early observations show that each of the instruments is working well. Read more at https://www.astrobio.net/image-of-the-day/first-light-data-for-nasas-parker-solar-probe/
