Current Event in Astronomy



You are to find an interesting astronomical event from the newspaper, magazine, or the internet.  Any news worthy event (meteor shower, spacecraft launch, exoplanet discovery, Congressional funding related to NASA, etc…) and discuss it in a paragraph (minimum of six sentences.)  You do not have to go into depth, but try to give an indication as to why you personally thought the event was worthwhile or important.  This is to be posted on the appropriate Discussion Board and must contain the following:

 ·       Title

·       Description of the event

·       Why you think this event is significant

·       How it relates to our course (identify specifically which chapter)

·       Include at least one photo

·       Cite your references (hyperlinks are acceptable)
