    Tonight we’ll bathe in the glow of 2014’s most splendid supermoon and gaze at the Perseid meteor shower’s hundred shooting stars every hour before being greeted anew by the morning sun. (Background image from a painting by Karen Suderman)

    The Moon is popping up a lot!

    So pleased that our findings from the 6.5-yr imaging survey I conducted with Cassini’s high resolution camera of the geyser basin capping Enceladus’ southern hemisphere made the cover of the Astronomical Journal!

    How sweet it is! [Scientists love this sort of thing ;-) ]

    Hathor, Museo Egizio

    Basalt statue of the Ancient Egyptian goddess Hathor. From the New Kingdom, 18th dynasty (reign of Amenhotep III 1388-1351BC).

    The statue was commissioned by Amenhotep III to celebrate his Sed Festival. Uniquely, in this depiction she holds a was-sceptre (not shown here), a symbol of power normally associated only with male gods. The statue was brought to Turin in 1753.

    Hathor is the goddess of music, dancing, joy etc. and is often represented as a cow, hence the horns.
