Supermoons and Water on Mars – What an Amazing Few Days!!

Good morning everyone!  WOW!! What an exciting last few days for science – especially in planetary bodies and exploration…

First, on Saturday, we were treated to a rare supermoon Lunar Eclipse.  We here in Lethbridge got to see it clearly and perfectly in the crisp, clean night skies above our city.  Some great photographs have emerged locally, as seen below, and internationally.  Also, check out the video on the supermoon event and its frequency.

Then yesterday, NASA announced that they have strong evidence that there are seasonal flows of water.  These flows were detected by one of NASA’s orbiters (the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter).  This suggests that there might possibly be life on Mars at this very moment!  Holy Martians Batman!!  This is news because there has been lots of evidence in previous explorations to show that Mars once was a watery planet, but that the water had long since left and disappeared leaving only icy patches behind.  For more information on this amazing find, check out the CBC News article here.  Google has even changed their banner image to commemorate the news announcement…
