Let's kick off #FourthofJuly weekend with some fireworks! The celestial variety that is.
What do we know about the asteroids & comets in Earth's neighborhood? There are lots out there & NASA's on the hunt. Planetary defense — which includes finding, tracking & characterizing near-Earth objects — is part of our mission. Here's what we've found:…
This #AsteroidDay you might be asking yourself, "Does NASA know about ALL the asteroids?" Luckily, we have your answer:
It's #AsteroidDay! But before you celebrate, let's go over the difference between an asteroid, a comet and a meteor:
This Hubble image contains thousands of galaxies. But it also contains some cosmic photobombers! The streaks you see here are actually the trails of asteroids. Today is #AsteroidDay! To find out more, check out:

After a rocket body impacted the Moon last year, NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter was able to snap a surprising view of the impact site. Unexpectedly, the crater is actually two craters and may indicate that the rocket body had large masses at each end:
All that glitters may not be gold but it certainly is thousands upon thousands (upon thousands!) of stars. This sparkling snapshot from @NASAHubble investigates a globular cluster rich in interstellar dust near the center of the Milky Way:
A brilliant cascade of stars lights up the center of this portrait from @NASAHubble as a smattering of distant galaxies sparkle throughout the frame. Space sure is poetic:
The transition zone may provide the record of a major shift in Mars’ climate billions of years ago that scientists are just beginning to understand. 2/2
As NASA's @MarsCuriosity rover travels from a clay-rich region to one filled with a salty mineral called sulfate, the rover has been studying the transition zone between the two –– and it's proving to be scientifically fascinating. 1/2

For decades, telescopes have helped capture light from galaxies as far back as 400 million years after the big bang. But did you know that now using @NASAWebb's tools we'll be able to see galaxies that existed even earlier? Here’s how:
Astronomers spot a young pulsar – a rapidly spinning neutron star that forms when a massive star runs out of fuel, collapses and explodes – blazing through the Milky Way at a speed of over a million miles per hour.

🚨 Discovery Alert 🚨 NASA’s TESS mission finds two rocky worlds orbiting a bright red dwarf star 33 light-years away from Earth. Both planets are “super-Earths” or terrestrial worlds like ours, only bigger, although unlikely to support life given
In a first for astronomers, a white dwarf has been caught in the act of siphoning off debris from both the inner and outer reaches of its system – rocky-metallic and icy materials that are the ingredients of planets.
The stars have aligned for a special #Juneteenth event! You’re invited to watch the free online premiere of The Color of Space, an uplifting documentary that tells the stories of Black NASA astronauts determined to reach new heights:

June's full Moon is a supermoon! But don't worry it's just a phase. What's a supermoon?? The Moon appears a little bigger and brighter than average because it's closer to Earth in its elliptical orbit. Read our Moon guide:

Congrats to the NuSTAR space telescope on 10 years of operations! 🥳 NuSTAR detects high-energy X-ray light and has observed some of the hottest, densest & most energetic parts of our universe… And this small but powerful telescope still has more to
Globular clusters – dense clusters of hundreds of thousands of stars – typically house only old stars, some nearly as old as the universe itself. But Liller 1 is unlike most of its kind, with two distinct stellar populations with remarkably different ages:
The giant elliptical galaxy at the heart of this galaxy cluster has a bright center, dim extended halo & lack of spiral arms, thus distinguishing it as an elliptical. Ellipticals are often near galaxy cluster centers suggesting they form as galaxies merge:
At closest approach during its 41st close flyby of Jupiter, Juno was ~2,050 miles above the behemoth palnet's colorful cloud tops. By comparison that's 10x closer to Jupiter than satellites in geosynchronous orbit are to Earth: 📸 processing: AndreaLuckF
Majestic and magnificent, M99 is appropriately known as a "grand design" spiral galaxy. "Grand design" spirals are so-called because of their well-defined and prominent spiral arms -- a descriptive name deserved by only one-tenth of spirals. More:
It’s estimated that about 100 million black holes roam around our Milky Way Galaxy – and for the first time ever, astronomers now believe they may have precisely measured the mass of an isolated black hole with Hubble! Discover more:
