One of the most uncommon celestial phenomena, a solar transit by the planet Venus, will occur Tuesday evening. The Marshall Center will help build excitement for the rare event with a Lunch & Learn at 11 a.m. on Monday, June 4, in Morris Auditorium in Building 4200. Marshall scientist, Dr. Jim Spann will host the informative session. Participants will learn more about the phenomenon, which occurs in a pattern repeated every 243 years, with pairs of transits eight years apart. Similar to a...

On June 5, 2012, Hinode captured these stunning views of the transit of Venus -- the last instance of this rare phenomenon until 2117. Hinode is a joint JAXA/NASA mission to study the connections of the sun's surface magnetism, primarily in and around sunspots. NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala., manages Hinode science operations and oversaw development of the scientific instrumentation provided for the mission by NASA, and industry.

The shower began around July 17, peaked August 12-13 and will be officially over by August 24. The Perseids have been observed for at least 2,000 years and are associated with the comet 109P/Swift-Tuttle. Video: NASA/MSFC/D. Moser, NASA's Meteoroid Environment Office

Pull cord, deploy chute. Sounds simple, right? For the Ares I-X team the trick was in that "pull cord" step. After a thorough root cause analysis, NASA has pinpointed the likely culprit behind the Ares I-X parachute system anomaly -- an errant cord yank that caused one reefing line pyro charge to fire prematurely while still in the parachute pack. During the Ares I-X suborbital flight, the packed parachutes shook and shimmied inside the vehicle. Engineers believe the pack dynamics...

On April 21, the 2012 Lyrid meteor shower peaked in the skies over Earth. While NASA allsky cameras were looking up, astronaut Don Pettit aboard the International Space Station trained his video camera on Earth below. Video footage has revealed breathtaking images of meteors ablating -- or burning up -- over Earth at night. This video is a composite of 310 still frames from that evening. (NASA/JSC/Don Pettit)

A bright Taurid streaks across southern Tennessee in the wee hours of Nov. 7, 2011. The bright flare in the meteor about two-thirds of the way into the video is caused by the meteor breaking into smaller pieces. (NASA/MSFC/Meteoroid Environment Office)

An annular solar eclipse took place in the late hours of May 20th, into the 21st, and was visible from the ground in southern China, Japan, and the western United States. Hinode is in a low-Earth (630km altitude - about 400 miles) sun-synchronous polar orbit that permits nearly continuous observations of the sun and was in position to capture images of the solar eclipse.

This brief video shows an unexpected visitor helping NASA astronomers watch for Perseid meteors -- but only for a moment! Video was taken on the night of Aug. 14, 2011, from the NASA camera located at the Tellus Science Center in Cartersville, Ga. The silvery full moon is visible in the lower left portion of the frame.

Dr. Robert Suggs, leader of the Space Environments Team at MSFC, captured NanoSail-D as it trekked across the sky on March 2nd, 2011. This video is from the small finder camera and appears just as was seen by the the naked eye that evening. Dr. Suggs utilized MSFC's Automated Lunar and Meteor Observatory to acquire the video. The same image was also captured in the facilities' 80mm and 14" telescopes.
