From shooting stars to solar flares, our galaxy is filled with cosmic wonders that we’re able to discover using the power of technology! Just like on our planet, new things are happening in outer space every day. Don’t believe us? Just check out this:
Meet NEOWISE, the comet coming to skies near you!
Yesterday evening you may have noticed a special “twinkle” in the sky. NASA has been keeping an eye on NEOWISE, a comet that skywatchers have been excited about lately. Last night, it reached the closest point to Earth on its travels through space! If you didn’t get a chance to see it, you can read about it and how NASA has been keeping up with it!
We LOVE these resources that NASA have put together, and we think you’ll love them too!
