What's up in the night sky this August? 🔭  

On Aug. 9, Mars appears close to the Moon before dawn. Look toward the south, high in the sky, and you can't miss it. On Aug. 12, catch the peak of the annual Perseid meteor shower. When & where to look up: https://t.co/gShGniqN1q https://t.co/5buykpoDLh

RT @NASA_Johnson: It’s Episode 4 of our Mars Monthly series on first Fridays! The ride to Mars will be long, and the vehicle carrying humans will need many features. Listen to what we’ve learned and what to consider for deep space transport on “Houston, We Have a Podcast.” https://t.co/HbQLP7SfMI https://t.co/ftY6OIPaoK

Near, far, wherever you are... @NASAHubble will get the shot! 📸

NGC 4907 glows from 270 million light-years away & shining brightly below the galaxy is a star within the Milky Way. This star seems much brighter as it is 100,000 times closer. Read more: https://t.co/rM6wtQOYB4 https://t.co/TSi8zjdpxE

🥐 Do we live in a bubble shaped like a deflated croissant? 

Scientists have developed a new puffy model for the shape of the Sun’s heliosphere, or the magnetic bubble that surrounds our solar system: https://t.co/Ni61PTUu3i https://t.co/tYAnd9MYfA

Nightglow on Mars is as bright in ultraviolet as our northern lights on Earth.

Images of the pulses of light, taken by our @NASAMars MAVEN orbiter, are being used by scientists to illuminate complex circulation patterns in the atmosphere: https://t.co/ridRVZ4tHR https://t.co/W5nv7wU8pK

Taking advantage of a total lunar eclipse, astronomers using @NASAHubble have detected ozone in our atmosphere. 

Why's this important?

🔭 Researchers can now use this new method – and space telescopes – to continue the search for life in our universe: https://t.co/scFEfdz66o https://t.co/aSEsyzoedh
