Carnival of space #550

Welcome  to a new carnival of space!

First I would like to say that I finally discovered the true source of the moon's light. See the following picture...

The photo is from the last full moon (which was a supermoon and also a total lunar eclipse, not visible from my area).  Although I am not into any supermoon hype, I always like to observe a full moon rising, and try to take nice pictures of it.

OK, hope you had some laugh and now for this week articles.
