Stargazing in October? We’ve got you covered. 🎃
Jupiter and Saturn are visible throughout the month. The full Moon illuminates the night starting Oct. 9. Mars enters retrograde, and the Orionid meteor shower puts on a show peaking on Oct. 20: solarsystem.nasa.gov/skywatching/wh…
You say it's your birthday? It's our birthday, too, yeah!
NASA was founded Oct. 1, 1958. On Oct. 1, 2001, @NASAHubble took this picture of a galaxy 50 million light-years away.
Check out what the space telescope saw on YOUR birthday: imagine.gsfc.nasa.gov/hst_bday/
Welcome to Space Apps 2022! 🎉
We are thrilled to kick off this year's Space Apps Challenge and #MakeSpace with our community, former @NASA astronaut, @Astro_Cady, Space Apps Program Scientist, @DrKeithGaddis, & our 11 Space Agency Partners.
Share your #SpaceApps selfies!
Celebrate our celestial companion on Oct. 1 with International #ObserveTheMoon Night.
Host an in-person or virtual event to share stories, artwork, photos, & more. Join fellow skywatchers and @NASAMoon experts for a special broadcast at 7pm ET (2300 UTC): go.nasa.gov/3ClAwqn
Our @SOFIAtelescope embarked on its final scientific flight today, Sept. 29, 2022. From discovering new water sources on the Moon to detecting the first type of molecule in the universe—SOFIA leaves a legacy of scientific discovery: go.nasa.gov/3CiJtAK
@caa1000 Over the years, Earth’s gravity and atmospheric drag bring Hubble closer to Earth. To extend the telescope’s lifetime, we’re exploring options to see if it’s possible to boost it into a higher, more stable orbit.
Here are details on the feasibility study with @SpaceX to boost Hubble into a higher orbit. The non-exclusive study is designed to help the agency understand the commercial possibilities of servicing missions: go.nasa.gov/3dQ9s9l
Images are coming back and being processed from our #JunoMission's early-morning flyby—the closest look at Jupiter's ice-encrusted moon in more than 20 years.
Here's what we're seeing so far. We'll be back with fully-processed images soon. go.nasa.gov/3UMeO5Y

No matter what you call it, we all celebrate the Moon. International Observe the Moon Night is on Oct. 1, and we want to see you #ObserveTheMoon: go.nasa.gov/3r30k3X
@R0Sc03j@Twitch@nasa_eyes With clear skies you should be able to see Jupiter, which is quite bright and visible to the naked eye. With binoculars, you should also be able to see four of its moons (Io, Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto), which will look like small points of light. solarsystem.nasa.gov/skywatching/ho…
@monoblancoatx We've got lots of eyes on Dimorphos! A number of observatories collected DART data on the ground and in space—including @ASI_spazio's LICIACube satellite, which captured imagery of the impact as it flew alongside DART. Check out LICIACube's first images: go.nasa.gov/3CeEb9k
Our detectives are studying tiny samples of lunar rocks brought back by Apollo astronauts, searching for clues about the origins of our Moon, Earth, and ourselves. In episode 2 of “NASA Explorers: Artemis Generation,” we join the scientists' search.
