Our Earth and the Moon.

Earth with its beautiful moon. I always wonder, why most languages don't have a name for the moon. All other moons in our solar system have names. Greeks however have a name for the moon: Selene.

Saturn eclipsing the sun, with the Earth visible in the upper left section of Saturn's rings. In 2009, NASA's robotic Cassini spacecraft drifted in Saturn's shadow for about 12 hours and Cassini saw a view unlike any other.  The rings light up so much that new rings were discovered. (NASA/APOD)

Gracias al observatorio espacial Herschel de la ESA, un grupo de astrónomos ha descubierto enormes cinturones de cometas que rodean dos sistemas planetarios cercanos conocidos por alojar mundos de tamaños comprendidos entre la Tierra y Neptuno. + info: http://www.ecoapuntes.com.ar/2012/12/cinturones-de-cometas-en-sistemas-cercanos-apuntan-a-exoplanetas-con-oceanos/

Interesting question: Do missing Jupiters mean massive comet belt? Two nearby planetary system have vast comet belts, but no Jupiter-like planets. Are those two things related?

Kepler-62 system and the Solar System with 2 new earth-like twins in the habitable zone

Kepler-62 and the Solar System

NASAs Kepler mission has discovered two new planetary systems that include three super-Earth-size planets in the habitable zone, the range of distance from a star where the surface temperature of an orbiting planet might be suitable for liquid water.

On July 5, 2012, the European Space Agency launched the Meteosat Second Generation-3 (MSG-3) weather satellite into a geosynchronous orbit about 40,000 kilometers above the Earth. It has several cameras on board, including the Spinning Enhanced Visible and Infrared Imager (SEVIRI) that takes (duh) visible and infrared pictures in 12 different wavelengths (colors). The first image from that camera was just sent back, and it’s an incredibly beautiful shot of our home world

delivers first image The first image of Earth captured by Europe’s latest weather satellite. Acquired on 7 August 2012 by its Spinning Enhanced Visible and Infrared Imager (SEVIRI).

Cassini is one of the most ambitious efforts in planetary space exploration. A joint endeavour of NASA, ESA and the Italian space agency, Cassini is a sophisticated spacecraft exploring the Saturnian system since
