Sky Guys on Planet Nine, the Year in Space, and a Long-Lived Mars Rover

Feb 4, 2016

It's our Sky Guys: the hunt for 'planet nine' continues, with evidence of a huge, but unseen mass beyond Pluto. The mars rover Opportunity celebrates its twelfth birthday, exploring the red planet long beyond expectations.  And this week, it's your best chance to see Mercury, Venus, Saturn, Mars, and Jupiter lined up across the early morning sky.
