Science education needs to be engaging, inspiring, and rewarding. That's why I'm supporting the #Arkyd space telescope to give students unprecedented access to a telescope in orbit around the Earth, and a brand new curriculum in science and engineering. http://lky.me/1GRW

PanSTARRS Anti-Tail Grows

As planet Earth approached the plane of the Comet PanSTARRS (C/2011 L4) orbit on May 23rd, comet watchers were treated to this view of its magnificent anti-tail. The long, narrow anti-tail stretches to the right across this frame for nearly 4 degrees or about 8 times the angular size of the full Moon. The tail trails along the comet's orbit as it leaves the inner solar system behind. An almost edge-on perspective from near the outbound comet's orbital plane enhances the view of the anti-tail and makes it seem to point in the sunward direction, only apparently contrary to the behavior of comet dust tails pushed outward by the pressure of sunlight. Sweeping far north in planet Earth's skies, the comet is up all night for most of the northern hemisphere, but now bright moonlight interferes with its visibility. PanSTARRS anti-tail is one of the longest since the appearance of Comet Arend-Roland in 1957.

Red Sprite Lightning with Aurora

What's that in the sky? It is a rarely seen form of lightning confirmed only about 25 years ago: a red sprite. Recent research has shown that following a powerful positive cloud-to-ground lightning strike, red sprites may start as 100-meter balls of ionized air that shoot down from about 80-km high at 10 percent the speed of light and are quickly followed by a group of upward streaking ionized balls. The above image, taken a few days ago above central South Dakota, USA, captured a bright red sprite, and is a candidate for the first color image ever recorded of a sprite and aurora together. Distant storm clouds cross the bottom of the image, while streaks of colorful aurora are visible in the background. Red sprites take only a fraction of a second to occur and are best seen when powerful thunderstorms are visible from the side.

#dsn50

If you could send a message or picture to #space, what would it be?

On Dec. 24, 2013, the Deep Space Network turns 50. Help us celebrate +NASA's worldwide antenna array that communicates with spacecraft throughout the solar system. http://go.nasa.gov/1ep9G14

"Here. There. Everywhere." – The Flow of Electric Charge

This video illustrates how the flow of electric discharge (electricity flowing from one point to another) is responsible for so many phenomena in our lives on Earth and beyond. Learn more about the flow of electric charge: http://hte.si.edu/electric.html
