Gazing up at the heavens at night, it’s easy to get lost in the beauty and immensity of the universe: the moon’s silvery glow, planets moving through their orbits, distant stars twinkling with light emitted millions of years ago.

This dancing of light we see when we look at stars has fascinated humans for centuries – even the smallest humans. “Twinkle twinkle little star, how I wonder what you are” is one of the first songs we learn as children. As we grow older, we learn the names of the stars and constellations.

USB stick found with strange 1800s planetary imagery and video!
Quote Form Source: "I don't know the story behind the usb Stick and who possessed it but I decided to share this with you. some images seem to show surface close ups of planets and some seem to be edited/blacked out. The videos are too freaky to describe. A friend said the stick contains old Voyager satellite recordings and files that are not supposed to be public as he has never seen something like that (he's a space dude). I will look more into the files now and keep you up to date. Once i figure out how to upload I will show to you the images."

Mercury is set to make a transit across the sun on Monday morning for the last time until 2032. A pinprick of darkness will puncture a small hole in the sunlight as the planet traverses the solar disk during a 5.5-hour stretch, starting at 7:35 a.m. Eastern time. And while you won't be able see it without protective glasses and heavy-duty telescope equipment, there are still plenty of ways to enjoy the show.
