September 5 2012 Astronomy Newsletter


Hi everybody!

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

Cassini Mission and Website
The space probe Cassini has been sending home fantastic pictures of Saturn and its satellites since 2004, and its mission has been extended twice. Its website has a wealth of images and some interesting material for teachers and astronomy fans.

*September Sky*

Hubblesite has a 6-minute video telling you what you can see in the sky this month. It’s at http://hubblesite.org/explore_astronomy/tonights_sky/ and there's also a downloadable PDF of the transcript if you want a copy of the information.

*Needed: a name for a special asteroid*

If you are a student under 18 or have students under 18, this may interest you. NASA and the Planetary Society are looking for a name for a special asteroid. NASA will be sending a sample return mission to this asteroid whose ID is (101955) 1999 RQ36. They’re looking for a name that's a bit catchier.

The competition is open to students anywhere in the world, though an adult must make the submission on their behalf. Each competitor can offer one name, up to 16 characters long, and not in violation of the naming rules of the International Astronomical Union. There also needs to be a short explanation of the name and the reason for choosing it. The deadline is December 2, 2012. For all the details, go to http://planetary.org/get-involved/contests/osirisrex/

To participate in online discussions, this site has a community forum all about Astronomy located here - http://forums.bellaonline.com/ubbthreads.php?ubb=postlist&Board=323

Please visit astronomy.bellaonline.com for even more great content about Astronomy.

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

Do pass this message along to family and friends who might also be interested. Remember it's free and without obligation.

I wish you clear skies.
