2022 Explore Science Calendar

January 12, 2022

Want to take a trip to outer-space? Here’s a great (and inexpensive) way to experience the beauty of a world beyond Earth’s atmosphere. NASA’s new 2022 Explore Science planner features spectacular photography of NASA’s exploration of our planet.

Here are a few excerpts from the calendar:

January — Return to the Veil Nebula. “The Veil Nebula is the visible portion of the nearby Cygnus Loop, a supernova remnant formed roughly 10,000 years ago by the death of a massive star. The Veil Nebula’s progenitor star—which was 20 times the mass of our Sun—lived fast and died young, ending its life in a cataclysmic release of energy. Despite this stellar explosion, the shock waves and debris from the supernova sculpted the Veil Nebula’s delicate tracery of ionized gas, creating a scene of surprising astronomical beauty.”

April — GOES West Captures Two Hurricanes and the Smoke of California Wildfires. “On August 25, 2020, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)’s Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES) West captured this dynamic GeoColor image of North America, where wildfires ravaged the drought-plagued West and Southwest United States. The resulting hazy gray shroud of smoke spread over much of the country. Over the Gulf of Mexico, Hurricane Laura can be seen heading toward Louisiana and eastern Texas while the remnants of Hurricane Marco swirl over the Southeast. In the image, smoke can be seen filling California’s Central Valley.”

October— Something Out There Is Watching You. “Do you ever look up at the night sky and feel like someone, or something, may be looking back at you? This Halloween image from NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope may convince you that you are right! But don’t expect to see these cosmic eyes without a face if you search the night sky with your own binoculars or telescope, as they are completely cloaked from view in visible light. They can only be found by telescopes that can see infrared light.”

The out-of-this-world NASA calendar

April 8, 2019

2019 Explore Science. The selected images from outer space in the calendar are nature’s art. Each is a moment in space and time that represents the efforts of many individuals committed to the scientific pursuit of knowledge and advancement of humankind.

Close your eyes and visualize the fantastic photography that characterizes the 2019 NASA Calendar. Here’s are brief descriptions of images featured in this year’s calendar to “just imagine.”

May: Tracking Landslide Potential in the Americas. Thanks to a new landslide model and detailed satellite measurements of precipitation made by NASA, scientists can look at landslide threats anywhere in the world in real time.

July: Celebrating 50 Years Since America Landed on the Moon. Apollo 11 launched from Cape Kennedy on July 16, 1969, carrying Commander Neil Armstrong, Command Module Pilot Michael Collins, and Lunar Module Pilot Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin.

October: The Bluest Blue. The part of this iceberg in Antarctica’s McMurdo Sound that is below the water surface appears vibrant blue primarily due to the blue light from the water in the sound.

To adventure into outer space you can purchase one of the now limited edition of NASA 2019 calendars still available.
