Hello all and welcome to a new CoS. Something always happen in space and here you will find what happened in the last week.
We will start with Mercury Transit from last week. What I love about such events is that they are so global. For several hours many people all over Earth watched this event from different countries, Universe Today collected some of the best photos and videos and present them in a single article:
One of my own videos is in UT's article and that is always an honor, but If you want more information and details including my photography setup please read my own summary of the transit as well.
Two more articles from UT:
- Will Earth Survive When the Sun Becomes a Red Giant? (My note: It is an interesting question but don't be concerned even if the answer is no)
- Messier 13 (M13) – The Great Hercules Cluster (My note: UT have great series about the different constellation and Messier objects. Pleasure to read)
- Chandra Movie Captures Expanding Debris From a Stellar Explosion (It is a big explosion)
- Help Wanted: A Universe of Images
- New worlds galore: Kepler Space Telescope confirms 1,284 more exoplanets (My note: do you remember the first one discovered? Now there are 1284 and more will be!)
- An astronomy guide to help you discover the wonders of the universe. It's a collection of things that got me inspired and more excited about astronomy (My note: A very nice article with useful resources)
That's all for today. Have clear nights and long days!
