🔹NASA Data Used to Discover Eighth Planet Circling Distant Star
.
🔹Our solar system now is tied for most number of planets around a single star, with the recent discovery of an eighth planet circling Kepler-90, a Sun-like star 2,545 light years from Earth. The planet was discovered in data from NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope.
.
🔹With the discovery of an eighth planet, the Kepler-90 system is the first to tie with our solar system in number of planets.

🔹The image shows the region spanning the sky from the constellation of Sagittarius (the Archer) to Scorpius (the Scorpion). The very colourful Rho Ophiuchi and Antares region features prominently to the right, as well as much darker areas, such as the Pipe and Snake Nebulae.

🔹The dusty lane of our Milky Way runs obliquely through the image, dotted with remarkable bright, reddish nebulae, such as the Lagoon and the Trifid Nebulae, as well as NGC 6357 and NGC 6334. This dark lane also hosts the very centre of our Galaxy, where a supermassive black hole is lurking.

🔹This artist’s impression shows the first interstellar asteroid: Oumuamua. This unique object was discovered on 19 October 2017 by the Pan-STARRS 1 telescope in Hawaii.
.
🔹Subsequent observations from ESO’s Very Large Telescope in Chile and other observatories around the world show that it was travelling through space for millions of years before its chance encounter with our star system.
.
🔹Oumuamua seems to be a dark red highly-elongated metallic or rocky object, about 400 metres long, and is unlike anything normally found in the Solar System.

🔹It’s incredible how much our knowledge has changed in the past one century. Until early 20th century the Milky Way was the only known galaxy! Many galaxies were observed but identified as objects inside the Milky Way. Today we know the universe has over a trillion galaxies, each holding many billions of stars. Here in a starry night of La Palma, Canary Islands, I was inside the 4-meter William Herschel Telescope as it was collecting starlight for astronomers in the control room. Note the startrails on the mirror, resulted from magnified star images (therefore faster moving) produced by the giant mirror.

🔹Rare Encircling Filament
.
🔹NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory came across an oddity that the spacecraft has rarely observed before: a dark filament encircling an active region. Solar filaments are clouds of charged particles that float above the sun, tethered to it by magnetic forces. They are usually elongated and uneven strands.
.
🔹Only a handful of times before have we seen one shaped like a circle. The black area to the left of the brighter active region is a coronal hole, a magnetically open region of the sun. While it may have no major scientific value, it is noteworthy because of its rarity. The still was taken in a wavelength of extreme ultraviolet light.
