May 30 2013 Astronomy Newsletter


Hi everybody

Here's the latest article from the Astronomy site at BellaOnline.com. As you can see it's a kid's version of the dwarf planet tour, but suitable for anyone who wants a quick introduction.

Dwarf Planet Tour for Kids
After all the fuss about Pluto, everybody knows that it's a dwarf planet now. But it's only one of five. Here's a mini tour of all five, including the one where a heatwave is the temperature of Antarctica, the one shaped like an egg, and one whose year is over 500 Earth years long. All aboard!

*Three planets at sunset*

I haven't seen any of the three planets (Venus, Jupiter and Mercury) in our overcast skies, but I've been enjoying some of the photographs.

Here is one taken by “lifelens” on May 29. 2013 in Jingshan Park in central Beijing.

And another one. It was taken by Paul Zoch on May 26, 2013 at Chula Vista, California. http://spaceweather.com/submissions/pics/p/Paul-Zoch-103_1369804516_lg.jpg
