World Oceans Day is June 8 World Oceans Day is June 8

The ocean is one of Earth’s most precious resources. It covers
71% of the Earth’s surface
and holds 97% of our planets water. The ocean plays an integral role in regulating Earth’s climate and weather. Many diverse and beautiful creatures inhabit the ocean. The ocean provides us with food, medicine and various other economic and recreational opportunities. Much of the ocean remains unexplored. For all of these reasons, Saturday – June 8, 2013 – is World Oceans Day, an event aimed at celebrating the ocean and raising awareness about the need to protect ocean health.
Organizers are also urging people to wear blue on Saturday to help raise awareness about the ocean, and to commit to practicing simple steps that can protect the ocean such as picking up trash at your local beach and drinking fr

. When we started talking about World Oceans Day on our social media pages on Friday, several people said they had never heard of it. In fact, Canada made the original proposal for World Oceans Day in 1992 at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The day has been unofficially celebrated every June 8 since then, and, in 2008, the United Nations did officially recognize it. Since then, World Oceans Day has been coordinated internationally by The Ocean Project and the World Ocean Network. These organizations say it has grea

This morning’s moon This morning’s moon

Waning crescent moon on June 5, 2013 via EarthSky Facebook friend Tom Wildoner. Thanks, Tom!
If you’ve been looking for the moon and not finding it, that’s because the moon is now a
waning crescent
visible only shortly before dawn. Here’s this morning’s moon from our friend Tom Wildoner. Tom wrote:
June 5th, 2013 – early morning crescent moon, taken with a Canon T4i and Meade 12″ LX-90. Weatherly, PA.
You should be able to see the moon for another day or two, waning, rising closer to the sunrise.
New moon
comes June 8. After that, the moon will be back in the evening sky as a
waxing crescent
. It’ll wax larger each evening until the upcoming supermoon on June 22-23!

What’s the difference between comets and asteroids? What’s the difference between comets and asteroids?

Astronomers announcement yesterday (June 3, 2013) that the peculiar
asteroid P/2010 A2 has a tail much longer than previously supposed
once again blurs the line between asteroids and comets. What’s the difference between comets and asteroids?
Asteroids are generally considered to be made up of metals and rocky material, while comets are made up of ice, dust and rocky material. Both asteroids and comets were formed during the earliest history of the solar system, around 4.5 billion years ago. Asteroids formed much closer to the sun, where it was too warm for ices to remain solid. Comets formed farther from the sun where ices would not melt. Comets, which approach the sun, lose material with each orbit because some of their ice melts and vaporizes to form a tail. Asteroids typically remain

Big Dipper high in north on June evenings Big Dipper high in north on June evenings

The chart at the top of this post shows the legendary
Big Dipper
, now high in the north during the evening hours. It’s one of the most familiar star patterns in the sky because its shape really resembles a dipper.
Less familiar – and tougher to find – is the Little Dipper. Here’s how you can find it.
First, locate the Big Dipper in the northern sky during the evening hours. Notice that the Big Dipper has two parts: a bowl and a handle. See the two outer stars in the bowl? They’re known as
The Pointers
because they point to the North Star, which is also known as Polaris.
Once you’ve found Polaris, you can find the Little Dipper. Polaris marks the end of the handle of the Little Dipper. You need a dark night to see the Little Dipper in full, because it’s so much fainter than its larger and

Watch or participate as huge asteroid sails past Earth on May 31 Watch or participate as huge asteroid sails past Earth on May 31

Tomorrow – May 31, 2013 – a 1.7-mile-long asteroid called 1998 QE2 will sail past Earth at a distance of about 3.6 million miles (5.8 million kilometers). That’s about 15 times the moon’s distance, so no worries. This object is
not
a hazardous asteroid, and the May 31 asteroid flyby is safe. But NASA will be watching with its Goldstone radar telescope, and NASA is inviting the public to online and television events beginning today (May 30) and tomorrow with NASA officials and experts discussing NASA’s asteroid initiative and the Earth flyby of asteroid 1998 QE2. Plus the Slooh Space Camera will be watching. Details on how you can participate below.

This date in science: First space shuttle docking with ISS This date in science: First space shuttle docking with ISS

May 29, 1999
. The space shuttle Discovery became the first in the shuttle fleet to dock with the with the International Space Station (ISS) on today’s date in 1999. The ISS – today described by American prime contractor Boeing as the “largest, most complex scientific project ever undertaken” – spanned the size of a football field when it was completed in 2011. In 1999, though, the station consisted of only two bare modules, called Zarya and Unity. One of major tasks of the shuttle Discovery’s crew was to transfer more than 1.5 tons of equipment to the inside of ISS.

Eta Aquarid meteor shower radiant point Eta Aquarid meteor shower radiant point

The radiant point of the Eta Aquarid meteor shower is near the star Eta in the constellation Aquarius the Water Bearer.
The Eta Aquarid meteor shower follows so closely behind April’s Lyrid meteor shower that it tends to be overlooked each year. Don’t overlook it! The shower might be an even better one than the Lyrids since there will be less moon in the sky.
Plus it’s an awesome shower for the Southern Hemisphere with perhaps 50 meteors per hour visible at the peak – Sunday morning, May 5, 2013 – for observers on the southern part of Earth’s globe.
Meanwhile, Northern Hemisphere Observers might see half than many meteors – still a good meteor display.

The Hubble Space Telescope captured this image of Comet C/2012 S1 (ISON) on April 10, 2013 when the comet was slightly closer than Jupiter’s orbit at a distance of 386 million miles from the sun (394 million miles from Earth). This comet is expected to put on a spectacular display in Earth’s sky – visible from both the Northern and Southern Hemisphere – in late 2013. It might even become a daytime comet!
