Summary of the top 5 'habitable planets'. Ps. Things are advancing so fast with recent discoveries with the Kepler Probe that we now already have an even stronger candidate than these five, Kepler-186f (see next pin on this Board), inside the Goldilocks Zone for the Red Dwarf Star it orbits & just 10% more massive than Earth. Place your bets please!
Also known as the Moon's ashen glow, Earthshine is Earthlight illuminating the Moon's night side. Taken on Nowruz, the March 20 equinox, from Esfahan, Iran, this telescopic image captures strong Earthshine from an old Moon. The darker earthlit disk is in the arms of a bright sunlit crescent.
