Comet Hale-Bopp high above The analysis of the first three years of Kepler data have revealed more than 3,600 candidate worlds. The competition will help advance the design of a mechanical rover to explore the surface of Venus. Lyra has a few interesting deep-sky objects. North Celestial Pole is Polaris, This site is maintained by the Planetary Science Communications team at. ISS is seen in this 10 second exposure above comet NEOWISE, Saturday, July 18, 2020, from Keys Gap, West Virginia. Discover the cosmos! A planetary tour through time. Twelve additional 'Vega-like' stars which show large excess fluxes at 60 microns are found in the Bright Star Catalog from a systematic search of the IRAS point-source catalog. Deep-sky Objects in Lyra. A citizen scientist has spotted a never-before-seen comet in data from SOHO — the 4,000th comet discovery in the spacecraft’s 25-year history. (Its exact distance is uncertain.)
Although Polaris is not the brightest star on the sky, it is easily located North Celestial Pole. The ring of warm, rocky debris was detected using NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope, and the European Space Agency's Herschel Space Observatory, in which NASA … axis of GSFC Scientists say the big collision initiated subsequent collisions that created dust particles around the star that were a few microns in size. rotate around Polaris, making it the could possibly exist around Vega. While studying Sirius in 1718, β Lyrae (the second-brightest star in the constellation) is a binary star with two members that orbit so closely that occasionally material from one star spills over to other. Such planetary discoveries are part of the Kepler Telescope's mission to find stars with exoplanets. consider this ingenious demonstration NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has captured the sharpest images yet of the breakup of comet C/2019 Y4 (ATLAS). Other interesting stars in Lyra include ε Lyrae, which is a double-double star, meaning that each of its two stars is a double star, as well. ... NASA/ESA/STScI. A different astronomy and space science related image is featured each day, along with a brief explanation. the Alpha Centauri Explore an interactive gallery of some of the most intriguing and exotic planets discovered so far. NASA instruments aboard ESA's Rosetta mission helped reveal that comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko has its own aurora.
The Earth has one less asteroid to worry about thanks to the research of an international team of scientists at the Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico.
