dougiewilkie @Regrann from @ocastronomy - Moon Meets Jupiter
Skygazers around planet Earth enjoyed the close encounter of planets and Moon in July 15 2012 predawn skies. And while many saw bright Jupiter next to the slender, waning crescent, Europeans also had the opportunity to watch the ruling gas giant pass behind the lunar disk, occulted by the Moon as it slid through the night. Clouds threaten in this telescopic view from Montecassiano, Italy, but the frame still captures Jupiter after it emerged from the occultation along with all four of its large Galilean moons. The sunlit crescent is overexposed with the Moon's night side faintly illuminated by Earthshine. Lined up left to right beyond the dark lunar limb are Callisto, Ganymede, Jupiter, Io, and Europa. In fact, Callisto, Ganymede, and Io are larger than Earth's Moon, while Europa is only slightly smaller.

Neptune:
The eighth and last planet in our solar system, Neptune is the fourth largest planet in diameter and third largest in mass. Neptune is the most dense of the Gas Giants, and is usually around -375 degrees Fahrenheit. Neptune, being the farthest from the sun is approximately 2.8 billion miles away from the sun. Neptune has very small rings made of dust particles first found by Voyager 2, and its core is made of ice.

diyhomeschoolmom 🌎 Once I recognized my kids' infatuation with the #SolarSystem, I made sure to provide them with the materials, books, documentaries, and hands-on science/art projects that would keep them orbiting around this subject for as long as they feel it's gravitational pull. I believe that one is not merely born an astronaut, but rather, one is fostered an astronaut. Parents are the key to their own child's success. #Planets #Orbit #SolarSatellite #Mercury #Venus #Earth #Mars #Jupiter #Saturn #Uranus #Neptune #Gravity #Atmosphere #Core #GasGiant #Craters #Storms #Meteorite #ShootingStar #Space #Jupiteristhelargestplanet #Mercuryisthesmallestplanet #MercuryisheavierthanJupiter 1w

joshportman Jupiter and Venus, illuminating the night sky and calling to me from the balcony of my Melbourne, Australia apartment last week.

biometricmerce This was originally an image of a storm on the surface of Jupiter. I've mangled it almost out of recognition. #gasgiant 2w

nickkblamo Can we all just take a moment to acknowledge that Googling #Uranus on a train will never EVER not be funny? Or off a train for that matter... I was on a train.#childish #planets #solarsystem #gasgiant 2w

joeybocc A reprocess of planet Jupiter. Captured Saturn this past weekend, but seeing was terrible as per usual around here so decided not to post that. 2w
