Headline #1: Moon Near Star Antares on August 1st

Synopsis: Tonight – August 1, 2017 – the bright star near the moon is Antares in the constellation Scorpius the Scorpion. You’ve got about another month or two to see this uniquely summer star for us in the Northern Hemisphere, during the evening hours. Antares is the brightest star near the moon tonight, while the other nearby bright beauty is the planet Saturn. If you’re in the Northern Hemisphere, Antares and Saturn are visible in the southern to southwest sky as night begins. If you’re in the Southern Hemisphere, they’re more overhead for you.

Headline #2: Eight Myths and Legends About The Moon

Synopsis: Almost from the beginning of history, time, tides, animals, and man have been impacted by the Moon, both scientifically and perhaps just as often by fairytales, fables, myths, and legends. Battles have been planned, won, and lost by the available (or unavailable) light of the Moon. Indians have names for the full Moons of each month, such as January’s Full Wolf Moon, September’s Full Harvest Moon, and October’s Full Hunter’s Moon dictated by what they signify. Moon myths abound in the Inuit and Maori cultures, as they do in literature and film from moonlight-dependent werewolves to Jules Verne’s prescient 1865 literary journey “From the Earth to the Moon.”

Headline #3: NASA Will Get to Test Its Planetary Defense System Way Sooner Than We Thought

Synopsis: NASA is extremely interested in building a true astroid defense network that could spring into action as soon as a threat is detected, destroying or diverting a space rock before it can do any serious damage here on Earth. The actual development of a protection system is still in its infancy — with many proposed plans for dealing with troublesome astroids but no real-world testing to back any of them — but that won’t stop NASA from testing its detection capabilities during an upcoming near-earth astroid flyby in October. Here’s how it’s going to work.

Headline #4: Luxembourg’s Asteroid Mining Law Takes Effect August 1st, 2017

Synopsis: Luxembourg’s parliament has voted in favor of passing an asteroid mining law that give companies ownership of what they extract from the celestial bodies. The European country has been working on the bill since 2016 and originally intended to pass it earlier this year. It took a bit more time to iron things out, but in the end, it’s gotten an overwhelmingly unanimous vote and is scheduled to take effect on August 1st. Luxembourg’s law is pretty similar to the one President Obama signed back in 2015 in that it gives mining companies the right to keep their loot. Both of them also take advantage of a loophole in the UN’s Outer Space Treaty, which states that nations can’t claim and occupy the moon and other celestial bodies.

Headline #5: Mystery UFO Sightings in Cornwall Have Earthly Explanation

Synopsis: If you’ve been following social media posts from people in Cornwall over the last week, then you may think the alien invasion of Earth has begun in the English peninsula. Multiple seemingly unconnected people posted videos over Twitter and Instagram showing a strange, swarming formation hovering in the sky along with the hashtag #ufocornwall. But it wasn’t aliens. It was likely the work of the Eden Project. The Eden Project is a series of massive greenhouses in Cornwall with connected transparent domes filled with exotic plants. It’s a visually stunning place and it’s about to launch a new attraction called Journey Into Space, which includes an Astronaut Academy, an astronomy photography exhibit and something called “Alien Encounter.” 

Headline #6: Was There A UFO Sighting at Skyfest?

Synopsis: Were you at Skyfest this past Weekend? And did you see a UFO? At least one man claims he did, and believes he has the video evidence to support his case. “Never have I captured anything like this–ever” said John Whichlow.  “Some people talk about meteors or birds or bugs that are close to the camera–I looked at it so closely and I don’t think it’s any of those.” The video shows a white object at five seconds in, dart by the frame before the Thunderbirds pass each other. Later at 36 seconds into the video you can see a smaller black object come through the fame following behind the ascending Thunderbird jet.

Headline #7: UFO Sighting in Rochester, New York

Synopsis: After a late dinner, myself, my fiance and my sister who was visiting from Florida, were sitting on our mothers screened-in porch having some drinks and conversation when I noticed the first light come into view above a nearby tree–it appeared to be moving towards us and passing overhead; I noted the unusual orange light seemed to glimmer, but dismissed it as an aircraft’s lighting being distorted by the porches screening; the viewable sky between the top of the tree and the top of the porch allowed for approximately 5-10 seconds of viewing.
