Eyes to the Sky  

 

Approaching Pluto, Marveling at Venus

 


Artist's concept of the New Horizons spacecraft as it approaches Pluto and its largest moon, Charon, in July 2015. The craft's miniature cameras, radio science experiment, ultraviolet and infrared spectrometers and space plasma experiments will characterize the global geology and geomorphology of Pluto and Charon, map their surface compositions and temperatures, and examine Pluto's atmosphere in detail. The spacecraft's most prominent design feature is a nearly 7-foot (2.1-meter) dish antenna, through which it will communicate with Earth from as far as 4.7 billion miles

(7.5 billion kilometers) away.

 

Now designated a dwarf planet, Pluto is being watched with excitement by professional and citizen astronomy enthusiasts, and we can join them. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (NASA) New Horizons explorer spacecraft is approaching the little planetary body - no small feat at a monumental 3 billion miles from Earth.

 

To participate virtually in the progress of NASA's historic New Horizons flyby mission to Pluto - which is scheduled to arrive at the icy world on July 14 - download Simulation Curriculum's free interactive exploration app, Pluto Safari for iOS and Android.

Venus, the shining Evening Star, begins its slow descent today and sets slightly earlier each evening, all the while gaining in brilliance. Venus sets in the west-northwest at 11:45pm tonight. Its apparent magnitude (m) today, -4.23m, increases to -4.47m over the coming month and a half. (The smaller the number the brighter the object.) In our neighborhood, according to my sources, Venus will be brightest from July 8 - 14. The planet, well-named for the goddess of love and beauty, sets between 10:28pm and 10:08pm during that period.
