August 17 2011 Astronomy Newsletter


Hello everybody!

It was apparently an off year for the Perseids. More people seem to have taken lovely pictures of the International Space Station going overhead than of meteors. But here's one taken by astronaut Ron Garan *from* the ISS! http://www.universetoday.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/ron-garan-perseid-580x313.jpg

News from Mars is that Opportunity is now on the rim of Endeavour crater after a three-year journey. This is a mosaic of pictures of the west rim – it’s a false color image to show up differences in rock and soil types. Spirit Point is on the left. The rover will investigate mineral deposits billions of years old to find out more about ancient Martian environments that might have been suitable for life. http://marsrovers.jpl.nasa.gov/gallery/press/opportunity/20110810a/PIA14507_Sol2678_P2383_L257F_br.jpg

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

Moon Madness
How much do people know about our next-door neighbor the Moon? Does the full moon drive people crazy? Apparently not – unless maybe they’re astronomers trying to observe faint nebulae. Here are ten common moon myths and lunar lapses.
