May 15 2014 Astronomy Newsletter


Hi everybody

Here's the latest article from the Astronomy site at BellaOnline.com.

Virgo the Maiden
Virgo is one of the constellations of the zodiac, and its stars have been linked to agricultural goddesses for thousands of years. This area of sky contains thousands of galaxies, dozens of known extrasolar planets, and was where the first quasar was discovered.

*Earth from space live from the ISS*

The International Space Station now has several cameras cameras mounted on it. The video from them is streamed live. http://eol.jsc.nasa.gov/HDEV/

The link I've given shows you what one of the cameras is picking up. But it also shows ESA's map of the space stations location, and also a Google map feed. The ISS orbits Earth every ninety minutes, so it will often be in the dark that produces a black screen. The view is also being switched from camera to camera, so this can cause a grey screen, as also happens if the communications downlink isn't available.

*YIKAISDAHA - breathtaking timelapse of Milky Way*

Most of the footage of this truly awesome timelapse video was shot in the Grand Canyon National Park and Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park. Wow! It needs full screen and sound. Absolutely stunning. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/250090585532470586/ The video title is the Navajo name for the Milky Way.

I hope to hear from you sometime soon, either in the forum or in response to this email message. I welcome your feedback!

I wish you clear skies.
