Earth and Kepler-186F

Scientists discover another Earth-like planet

NASA's Kepler Space Telescope discovered an Earth-like planet orbiting a start within the habitable zone of our galaxy, Kepler-186f, approximately 500 light years away from Earth in the Cygnus constellation.  This habitable zone is the region around a star where planetary-mass objects with sufficient atmospheric pressure can support liquid water at their surfaces.  This discovery is rated the first Earth-sized planet to be found in the habitable zone of another star.

Earth's Second Moon, 3753 Cruithne

Everyone knows and loves the moon.  What you may not know is that it's not Earth's only natural satellite.  In 1997, another body was discovered, 3753 Cruithne, also called a quasi-orbital satellite of Earth.  This means that Cruithne doesn't orbit Earth in a nice ellipse the same way our moon does.  Instead, Cruithne scuttles around the inner solar system in what's called a horseshoe orbit.

Kepler-186f

NASA discovers Earth-sized planet that could be habitable

NASA has discovered an Earth-sized planet that could potentially be habitable.  Designated Kepler-186f and discovered about 500 light years away from home in the constellation Cygnus, this new planet is likely a rocky world and may be similar to Venus, Mars, and Earth.  The system is also home to four other planets, orbiting around a host star about half the size and mass of the sun.

Lunar eclipse chart

Minor Lunar Eclipse expected this Friday night

The moon will pass through Earth's faint outer shadow, known as the penumbra, this Friday evening, with the time of the deepest eclipse occurring at 7:50pm ET.  People in the Mountain and Pacific time zones may not see the eclipse since this will occur in the later afternoon hours before the moon rises.
