Every day NASA posts a new astronomy-related picture to their site. I am going to bring them to you in case you forget.
This Sunday’s image is titled Skylab Over Earth.
Explanation: Skylab was an orbiting laboratory launched by a Saturn V rocket in May 1973. Skylab, pictured above, was visited three times by NASA astronauts who sometimes stayed as long as two and a half months. Many scientific tests were performed on Skylab, including astronomical observations in ultraviolet and X-ray light. Some of these observations yielded valuable information about Comet Kohoutek, our Sun and about the mysterious X-ray background – radiation that comes from all over the sky. Skylab fell back to earth on 1979 July 11.
