August 3 2011 Astronomy Newsletter


Hello everybody!

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

Who Let the Dogs out?
Someone must have left the door open, because the skies are full of dogs. You can see the dogs of Orion and the hunting dogs of the shepherd Bootes in pursuit of the Great Bear. There is also the Running Dog Nebula and the memory of poor Laika, the first cosmonaut, who perished in space.

Look for the waxing crescent Moon at dusk tonight (Wednesday) and tomorrow. Also look out for Saturn nearby.

*Birthdays*

Maria Mitchell was born on August 1, 1818. She was the first American woman to become a professional astronomer. The first woman since Caroline Herschel to discover a comet, she became a professor at Vassar College.

It is Neil Armstrong's 81st birthday on August 5th.

That's all for now. Wishing you clear skies.
