Did you see it? Evening fireball!! We are getting reports of a very bright meteor in bright evening twilight at 20:44 CEST, seen from Slovenia, likely visible a...cross the Alpine region, the northern and central Adriatic, northern and western Balkans!

On this day: 7 January 1610, Galileo Galilei observed with his telescope what he described at the time as 'three fixed stars, totally invisible by their smallne...ss', all close to Jupiter, and lying on a straight line through it. Observations over the next nights showed that these 'stars' moved relative to Jupiter in a way that would have been inexplicable if they had really been fixed stars. On 10 January, Galileo noted that one of them had disappeared, an observation which he attributed to it being hidden behind Jupiter. Within a few days, he concluded that they were orbiting the planet: he had discovered three of Jupiter's four largest moons (later named Io, Europa, Ganymede). He discovered the fourth (Callisto) on 13 January.

Podróże małe i duże Teleskopu Kosmicznego im. Jamesa Webba
How do we move Webb telescope from one location to another? Using a huge, specially designed shipping container called the Space Telescope Transporter for Air, ...Road, and Sea (STTARS).
Throughout the construction and assembly of Webb, the telescope has moved between NASA centers and partner locations. The STTARS container protects Webb during its journeys on ground, above ground, and over water. The massive container weighs approximately 165,000 lbs (almost 75,000 kgs) and dwarfs Webb in terms of mass — the telescope weighs approximately 14,000 lbs (6,350 kgs) here on Earth. All of that bulk is needed to keep Webb’s individual parts, and eventually the fully assembled telescope, safe during the journey to the launch pad.

APOD: Crossing Horizons (2017 Nov 25)
Image Credit & Copyright: Jean-Francois Graffand
Explanation: Follow this vertic...al panoramic view from horizon to horizon and your gaze will sweep through the zenith of a dark night sky over Pic du Midi mountaintop observatory. To make the journey above a sea of clouds, 19 single exposures were taken near the end of night on October 31 and assembled in a mercator projection that renders the two horizons flat. Begin at the top and you're looking east toward the upsidedown dome of the observatory's 1 meter telescope. It's easy to follow the plane of our Milky Way galaxy as it appears to emerge from the dome and angle down toward the far horizon. Just to its right, the sky holds a remarkable diffuse glow of zodiacal light along our Solar System's ecliptic plane. Zodiacal light and Milky Way with star clusters, cosmic dust clouds and faint nebulae, cross near the zenith. Both continue down toward the airglow in the west. They disappear near the western horizon at the bottom, beyond more Pic du Midi observatory domes and a tall communications relay antenna.
