DailyDirt: Astronomy Makes Astrology Kinda Complicated
from the urls-we-dig-up dept
The universe is filled with some weird stuff, and astronomers are always looking out to find new, unexplained phenomena. If our lives were really governed by the motions of distant stars, there'd be a looot of movements to take into account.... Still, there are plenty of folks who are wondering what their new astrology sign might mean. But however the stars move, astrologers probably enjoy all these new astronomical discoveries, if only because it makes their jobs more interesting. So, here are a few cool observations.
The Hubble is looking at a green gas cloud called Hanny’s Voorwerp. The object was discovered in 2007 by Dutch schoolteacher, Hanny van Arkel.

That planet is more than a bit too hot for our biology, but there are at least a few hundred more planets in Kepler's sights. [url] Mars might have giant caves! Or at least, it has big dark craters of some kind. [url] Here's a "mysteries of space" timeline. Seriously not drawn to scale... especially a googol years in the future. [url]
