3, 2, 1 liftoff! It’s a familiar phrase heard just before a rocket launches at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center or Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.

Solar Eclipse

The afternoon sky will get a little darker than normal for most of the United States tomorrow. That’s because there’s a partial solar eclipse. A solar eclipse occurs when the new Moon passes directly between Earth and the Sun. Most months, the Moon skims just above or below the Sun as seen from Earth, so there’s no eclipse at all. This eclipse is only partial — the Moon will cover only a portion of the Sun’s disk. So the sky will resemble an early dusk, and the temperature may drop a little bi [...]

Illusions in the Cosmic Clouds
Spacefellowship.com [COSMIC]
Pareidolia is the psychological phenomenon where people see recognizable shapes in clouds, rock formations, or otherwise unrelated objects or data. There are many examples of this phenomenon on Earth and in space. When an image from NASAs Chandra X-ray Observatory of PSR B1509-58 -- a spinning neutron star surrounded by a cloud of energetic particles --was released in 2009, it quickly gained attention because many saw a hand-like structure in the X-ray emission. In a new image of the s [...]
