Let’s discover what is the reason that Venus is so bright? Two weeks ago, Larry Estes in North Richland Hills, Texas has taken a photo…View More What Is the Reason That Venus Is So Bright?
There is no secret that the Earth has only one natural satellite (our Moon), which is thought to have formed about 4.51 billion years ago, but how many moons are there in our Solar System? In the Solar System we have some planets that don’t have any other moon, but we have some planets that have approximately more than 53 moons such as Jupiter.View More How Many Moons Does Our Planets Have in Our Solar System?
We live in a beautiful place, where everything is colorful and bright. But have you ever thought about to move on another planet? Or have you thought about how long people would survive on each planet. We think, each of us has a dream to appear neighboring planet. So, we prepare for you a list, where is indicated how long people would survive on each planet without a spacesuit.View More How Long People Would Survive on Each Planet Without a Spacesuit!
For many years scientists know about strong wind on Venus. However thanks to the spacecraft “Venus-Express”, it became known that increased intensity and force of the winds on Venus. They turned into the real hurricanes which many times over surpass force of terrestrial hurricanes. At this stage scientists who are engaged in studying of winds on atmosphere of Venus, can’t explain the mechanism of action and emergence of similar winds. Very difficult, but it is important to understand that provokes so strong wind on Venus. Their speed sometimes reaches 300 km/h. And in recent years even 400 km/h. By the words of Russian scientist Igor Khatuntsev, earlier they never observed similar speeds of hurricanes on Venus.View More Super wind on atmosphere of Venus

The transit of Venus across the sun is one of the rarest celestial sights visible from Earth, one that wowed scientists and amateur observers around the world Tuesday (June 5). The event, arguably the most anticipated skywatching display of the year, marked the last time Venus will cross the sun (as seen from Earth) for 105 years. Venus transits occur when Venus reaches a point in its orbit that brings the planet directly between the Earth and the sun.View More Rare Transit of Venus
Venus will pass in front of the sun from Earth’s perspective on Tuesday (June 5; Wednesday, June 6, in much of the Eastern Hemisphere), marking the last such Venus transit until 2117. However, there’s a chance to observe an Earth transit less than two years from now using a little creative thinking, some researchers note. In January 2014, Jupiter will witness a transit of Earth. And we can see it too, the astronomers say, by training NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope on the huge planet and studying the sunlight it reflects.View More Hubble May See Transit of Earth in 2014
On June 5th, 2012, Venus will pass across the face of the sun, producing a silhouette that no one alive today will likely see again. Transits of Venus are very rare, coming in pairs separated by more than a hundred years. This June’s transit, the bookend of a 2004-2012 pair, won’t be repeated until the year 2117. Fortunately, the event is widely visible. Observers on seven continents, even a sliver of Antarctica, will be in position to see it.View More Transit of Venus 2012
Astronomers are planning to use NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope to observe next month’s historic transit of Venus across the sun’s face. But there’s a twist. Astronomers can’t point Hubble anywhere near the sun, because our star’s bright light could damage the telescope’s super-sensitive instruments. So Hubble will watch the June 5-6 Venus transit by using the moon as a mirror. The goal is to see if Hubble can determine the makeup of Venus’ atmosphere by studying sunlight that has poured through it.View More Hubble to Observe Venus Transit
