On November 14, 1971, Mariner 9, the first spacecraft to orbit the Red Planet took this and other images of a Martian shield volcano, approximately 25 miles across at the crater. The images were photographed consecutively with the craft's wide-angle and telephoto lenses. The summit crater and grooves down the flank probably were produced by subsidence flowing subsurface movement of magma. Mariner 9 was also the first spacecraft to orbit another planet and was designed to continue the atmospheric studies begun by Mariners 6 and 7, and mapped more than 70% of the Martian surface.

No it's not a dust speck. It's distant Earth through Saturn's rings. Gunmetal plated copper bangle bracelet with jewelry grade resin epoxy photo pendant. Photo taken by the Cassini spacecraft.

Meet Oumuamua. The first known interstellar space rock, known formally as 1I/2017 U1, was spotted Oct. 19 by Robert Weryk of the Institute for Astronomy. Let this motivate you to go out and explore the universe. You never know what’s out there until you go find out for yourself. . . . . . . . #space #Oumuamua #nasa #Asteroid #Interstellar #spacerocks #spacex #galaxy #solarsystem #explore #the #universe

As a science fiction writer I love this stuff. Anything that you can use to piece together the unknown and make fiction a little more fact is so helpful! (Also it’s just pretty cool). #scifi #sicencefiction #writer #author #infinitevelocity #astroid #space #canadianspaceagency #solarsystem #nearearthobjects

#Repost @nasa (@get_repost) ・・・ See that swirling cloud that looks like cream in coffee? It’s actually a massive, raging storm in Jupiter’s northern hemisphere. The bright clouds and their shadows range from approximately 4 to 8 miles in both widths and lengths. These appear similar to the small clouds in the other bright regions our Juno spacecraft (@NASAJuno) has detected and are expcted to be updrafts of ammonia ice crystals possibly mixed with water ice. This image was captured on Oct. 24 at 10:32 a.m. EDT by our Juno spacecraft during its ninth close flyby of the gas giant planet.

#Repost @nasa (@get_repost) ・・・ A developing filament near the edge of the Sun churned and twisted as the rotating Sun brought it into clearer view Nov. 16-17. Filaments are cooler and often unstable clouds of particles floating above the Sun’s surface, which are tethered by magnetic forces. In extreme ultraviolet light, they appear darker than the Sun’s surface. The bright area to the right of the filament is an active region. The loop that appears behind the filament in the middle of the clip is made of charged particles tracing magnetic field lines.

Made an updated solar system collage with my latest images of the planets. I even added Pluto! Nothing is to scale and the Moon is standing in for Earth. I shot most of the planets with an 8" Newtonian reflector. The Sun and Venus were shot with a 6" telescope. #space #astrophotography #astronomy #planet #solarsystem #universetoday #oriontelescopes #planets
