Space Game! Where in the Solar System is Destination Six? (day 1)

Hey Space Bloggers!

Are you ready to launch to our next mystery destination? I hope you’re all nodding your heads, because we are taking off…3…2…1…We have lift off! …Ho, hum…You know I can’t stand just waiting around on these long space flights, so — Wait a minute, can that be it?Already? Yes! And what a view! Space Bloggers, you’re in for a treat! Destination Six is right in front of us, covering most of our view screen. But just moving into view on the right is, well you’ll see. Go ahead and take a look.

Since we have such a clear view of Destination Six, I’m going to get out our super duper zoomer lens and see what we can find on the surface. Closer… closer…closer…Now this is interesting. I’ve zoomed in on one square inch of the surface and seem to be looking at a pile of tiny glass beads! Here, I’ll zoom in on one.  It’s about the size of a period on this page. Fascinating, don’t you think?

Hmmm. Takes a lot of heat to make a glass bead. Wonder what happened on Destination Six to make this one???

    Last night I visited the Houston Astronomical Society telecope site and saw images of our moon that look surprisingly like your Destination 6!
    We were looking at the brightest crater on the moon that was named for, whom some would say is the brightest astronomer, Aristarchus

    • Hi Gulfstream! Nice to hear from you! So glad you brought up Aristarchus, a brilliant fellow, indeed. Let’s talk some more about him and his luminous namesake next week on Space Blog. Sound good?
