The black hole is also the target of the globe-spanning Event Horizon Telescope, a collaboration that published the first image of a black hole in April. The team that discovered this unprecedented flare-up observed Sgr A* for four nights with an infrared camera at the Keck Observatory on Mauna Kea in Hawaii .
Delta Aquariids appear to come from the constellation Aquarius, visible in the southern part of the sky, while the Perseids will be in the northern part of the sky. Skywatchers should be able to see between 60 and 70 per hour at the peak. But "Earthgrazer" meteors, which skim Earth's atmosphere and showcase long, blazing tails, are visible earlier when the radiant is low above the horizon.
EarthSky notes that the Delta Aquariid shower is active every year from about July 12 to August 23. If you can't hang with the late night stargazers Monday night, don't worry - the Perseid meteor showers will be at its most visible in mid-August.
The US president also took the opportunity to press NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine to expedite the mission to reach Mars. In the decades since USA astronaut Neil Armstrong uttered, "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind", various nations have advanced their own lunar missions - including China, which plans to explore the moon's polar regions by 2030.
Sat atop a powerful Saturn V rocket, the eyes of the world were on the three astronauts as they began their 225,000-mile journey to Earth's natural satellite. "Some men just resist change and a woman coming into the workplace is a change", she added, quipping that "it's like mosquitos in Florida, you just swat them".

The warmest air of the season will be with us through the weekend. The system, located 70 miles (115 km) north of Shreveport, Louisiana with maximum sustained winds of 30 mph (45 kmh), is moving slowly north toward Arkansas, the Miami-based weather forecaster said.
The disc is a scaled down quasar - a celestial object that emits an exceptional amount of energy - that's normally found in objects that are at least a 1000 times brighter . The two black holes will continue to get closer to one another sending out large ripples in space-time, known as gravitational waves , which will be detected again on Earth.
PSLV versus GSLVThe two big missions before this-the Chandrayaan-1 and Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM)-were launched using the PSLV class of launch vehicles , while this will be launched using India's heaviest rocket so far. "Everything is progressing normally", said an official of Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). The United States spent about $ 25 billion -- the equivalent of more than $100 billion in current prices -- on 15 Apollo missions, including the six that put Armstrong ...
Then, keep an eye to the skies with scattered strong to possibly severe storms after 3 p.m. today . Expect heavy rainfall with localized flash flooding possible with storm development. Calm wind becoming west around 5 miles per hour. Tonight partly cloudy with temperatures falling in the upper 70s-low 80s this evening as overnight lows drop in the low-mid 70s.
Part of Russia's Kuril Islands chain near northern Japan, Raikoke is an uninhabited volcanic island that has been dormant since 1924. On 22 June, Raikoke volcano erupted unexpectedly into a huge plume of smoke and ash. The fantastic image, which shows a huge plume of smoke rising up and surrounded by white clouds, was released by NASA Earth Observatory . "What a spectacular image", Simon Carn, a volcanologist at Michigan Technological University, said in the NASA press release .
It took several hours to release them all. In what seemed like more of an advertisement for SpaceX merchandise, the link directs users to a $15 worth of "Occupy Mars "Heat Sensitive" Terraforming Mug", which is now out of stock on the site.
SpaceX has landed and used many of its booster rockets a couple of times, touting their reusability as an effective way to cut the costs of future space travel. Lift-off begins from NASA's Kennedy Space Centre in Florida during a launch window that opens at 11:30pm EDT Monday (that's Tuesday 25 June 1:30pm AEST for those playing on the Australian East Coast).
Though the Pi had been hooked up to the network by the worker, lax controls over logging meant Nasa directors didn't comprehend it was current, stated the report . The hackers also gained access to several major missions, including NASA's Deep Space Network . It is also the world's most sensitive and largest system of scientific telecommunications.
With the Heavy, NASA will be sending to space the Deep Space Atomic Clock (DSAC), a piece of hardware meant to test a system that could allow future astronauts to use a GPS-derivative in space. SpaceX's Falcon Heavy rocket is required to draw huge crowds once again. It was short, the inclusion of power units of the Central unit and a pair of side boosters of the carrier, the launch of which was scheduled for June 24 in the interests of the air force of the United States.
Scientists had prolonged hypothesised that they also can belong to hyenas, however the idea had no longer been confirmed. Prior to this discovery, bones of the Chasmaporthetes have been found as far north as Mongolia and the southern United States, but nowhere in between the two regions.
Two of these short-stay missions will be allowed every year, and the first tourist may go up as early as 2020 using a USA spacecraft by SpaceX or Boeing developed under NASA's Commercial Crew Program . NASA works with over 50 companies right now that test or manufacture products in space. It's been nearly a decade since the last tourist visited the International Space Station via a Russian spacecraft, but NASA could be opening the hatch to new private astronauts as soon as 2020.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made the announcement on the first full day of Women Deliver 2019 , an global conference on gender equity being held in Vancouver this week. And it called for sweeping changes, detailed in 231 recommendations for improving the security, justice , health and culture of Canada's indigenous people.
An hour into its flight, the rocket started deploying the satellites into low Earth orbit 280 (450 km) miles above. Most are already using their onboard propulsion system to reach their operational altitude and have made initial contact using broadband phased array antennas .
In fact, it orbits its star every 1.3 days. Scientists call this region close to the surface of a sun the Neptunian Desert . In a friendly gesture towards science writers, astronomers have given NGTS-4b a much more user-friendly name: "The Forbidden Planet".
