Happy New Year!

If you are outside this New Year's Eve, look up - you will see an unusual sight: a "blue moon". No, the moon isn't actually blue. It means that it's the second full moon in a calendar month (or the third  in a season of four full moons). That happens about once every 2½ years. But a blue moon on New Year's Eve? That hasn't happened since 1990, and won't happen again until 2028.

So, let's hope that 2010 is better than 2009, and that someday, someone will be celebrating on the lunar surface, looking back down on Earth.

2009: The Year In Space

As 2009 draws to a close, it's time to look back at the year in space.

What will 2010 bring?

Merry Christmas!

Best Christmas wishes to all our readers! Kids, track Santa's journey around the world tonight at NORADSanta.org! Now, it works with Google Earth!

Also, there's still time to send Holiday Greetings to the ISS crew. Here is their message to us.
