Titan (one of Saturn's moons) is currently the only other world besides Earth known to have stable bodies of liquid on its surface, but unlike Earth, Titan’s lakes aren’t filled with water — instead they’re full of liquid methane and ethane, organic compounds which are gases on Earth but liquids in Titan’s incredibly chilly -290º F (-180º C) environment. - Credit: (NASA/JPL-Caltech/SSI)

The sun: a solar flare - I used to think that only overzealous New Agers believed that sunspots and solar flares could affect the psyche. But if they can mess with power grids, GPS, satellites, and radio waves, then maybe, just maybe I was wrong... http://articles.baltimoresun.com/2012-06-23/news/bs-hs-space-weather-20120623_1_solar-flares-solar-weather-coronal-mass-ejections

The pair of galaxies known as Arp 87 seem to have a ‘bridge’ connecting the two. This connection, made up of gas, dust, and stars like the galaxies themselves, is the result of the mutual gravity each galaxy exerts on the other. Want more astronomy? Head over to astronomyforamate...!

NGC 1499: The California Nebula Credit & Copyright: Markus Noller (Deep Sky Images) What's California doing in space? Drifting through the Orion Arm of the spiral Milky Way Galaxy, this cosmic cloud by chance echoes the outline of California on the west coast of the United States. Our own Sun also lies within the Milky Way's Orion Arm, only about 1,500 light-years from the California Nebula. Also known as NGC 1499, the classic emission nebula is around 100 light-years long.
