The Great Solar Eclipse of 2017! On August 21st ASUH hosted an event in honor of the Great Solar Eclipse for the UH community and the general public. We provided educational clips, live streaming footage from our on-campus Observatory, live footage from NASA's Path of totality coverage, several hands on demos, pin-hole projection viewers, filtered telescopes and solar glasses. There was also a tour of the Observatory along with an opportunity to see the sun through the newly mounted 12 & 1/2'' telescope.

A black and white of the Earth (left) and Moon (right) system. -via @planetarysociety That's all of us on the left, that's home. On the right is our Moon. Together we make for one epic group photo, taken just last week. • This is the OSIRIS-REx spacecraft's NavCam view of Earth and the Moon together. This black-and-white image of the Earth-Moon system was captured on September 25, 2017 by the wide-angle NavCam 1 on OSIRIS-REx. At the time this image was taken, the spacecraft was retreating from Earth after performing an Earth Gravity Assist maneuver on September 22. Earth and the Moon are 401,200 kilometers apart, and the spacecraft is 1,297,000 kilometers from Earth and 1,185,000 kilometers from the Moon. • Where are the stars? We get this question a lot! The exposure time for this image, and images like this one, is too short for any stars to be seen. The short exposure allows for more detail of the Earth and Moon 📸 • Credit: NASA / GSFC / UA • #nasa #space #earth #moon #inspire #explore #spacecraft #planet #beautiful
