Planets put on a show in the evening sky

 

As soon as the sun goes down, four planets are putting on a show for all to see.

NASA announced on Wednesday, February 3, 2010, that its original Cassini-Huygens mission to explore Saturn and its moons will be extended to 2017. A NASA official calls the information returned from the mission 'eye popping.'

NASA astronomer Brian Jackson has presented information that the exosolar planet Corot-7b is vaporating due to its decreasing distance to its parent star. Its molten surface is so hot that the planet is slowly evaporating due to extreme temperatures of upwards of 1,980 degrees Celsius (3,600 degree Fahrenheit).

The Cassini spacecraft, as announced by NASA on December 18, 2009, has confirmed the presence of liquid hydrocarbons on the surface of Saturn’s largest moon Titan with the use of ‘specular reflection’: recording the reflection of sunlight off of one of Titan’s methane lakes.

Space telescope finds supersized Saturn ring

NASA announced on October 6, 2009, that its Spitzer Space Telescope has discovered another ring around the planet Saturn. And, it’s a big one. The thickness of the newly found ring would allow one billion Earths to be strung end to end.

Cassini heightens its study of Saturn's rings

Project scientists with the Cassini spacecraft mission are astonished to see for the first time that the rings of Saturn have a dramatic third dimension, height, and some of them are as tall as a couple of miles.

The Cassini spacecraft has detected sodium salts within ice grains of the outermost ring of Saturn. Since jets from its moon Enceladus replenish the material found in the ring, astronomers think an ocean of liquid water could exist beneath its surface.

Published in Space
Astronomers with the NASA Cassini spacecraft imaging team announced that they discovered a tiny moon (S/2008 S 1) orbiting Saturn's second most outer ring. It is the 61st moon known to be orbiting the giant planet Saturn, and a huge discovery for learning more about the evolution of its ring system.

Comet Lulin will be making its closest approach to Earth on February 24, 2009. It has already given quite a few surprises as it heads toward us. Now, it is even visible without a telescope, just with your two eyeballs. As a plus, see the comet next to Saturn and four of its moons transiting the planet.

February 24, 2009 marks the time to see a rare glimpse of the moons Titan, Mimas, Dione, and Enceladus move across the face of their mother planet Saturn. As an added treat, see Comet Lulin streak across this same darkened sky only a few degrees away from Saturn.

NASA acknowledges that as astronomers look closer at Saturn’s small moon Enceladus they are finding a very dynamic and geographically active surface and atmosphere, especially about its south pole.

Published in Space
New, exciting research from NASA’s Cassini spacecraft shows that the plumes being ejected from Saturn’s moon Enceladus are likely composed of liquid water because of their extremely fast speeds.

Published in Space
NASA announced on Wednesday, July 30, 2008, that it has observed—for the first time ever in the solar system (other than on Earth)—a liquid body on the surface of a celestial object--in this case, Saturn’s moon Titan.

Published in Space
The NASA spacecraft Cassini, while on its travels around the planet Saturn, has found striking evidence that the tiny Saturnian moon of Enceladus may have a vast ocean underneath its cold, icy surface.

Published in Space
During the first ten days of July 2008, the two planets Mars and Saturn and the bright star Regulus will be seen low in the western sky after dusk and into the evening, less than one-third the way up from the horizon.

Published in Space
During the month of May 2008, the International Space Station will be brightly seen over the evening skies of North America and Europe as it crosses Mars, Saturn, Jupiter, and the Moon.

Published in Space
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory announced on April 15, 2008 that the international Cassini-Huygens mission around the planet Saturn and its moons will be extended for two more years.
