NASA Needs Your Help

HIDDEN PLANETS MAY BE LURKING AROUND THE EDGES OF OUR SOLAR SYSTEM, AND ASTRONOMERS FROM NASA WANT THE PUBLIC’S HELP TO HUNT THEM DOWN!

THROUGH A NEW WEBSITE CALLED BACKYARD WORLDS: PLANET 9, EAGLEEYED CITIZEN-SCIENTISTS CAN NOW HELP SEARCH FOR OBJECTS FAR BEYOND THE ORBIT OF OUR FARTHEST PLANET, NEPTUNE, BY VIEWING BRIEF “FLIPBOOK” MOVIES MADE FROM IMAGES CAPTURED BY NASA. A FAINT SPOT SEEN MOVING THROUGH BACKGROUND STARS MIGHT JUST BE A DISTANT PLANET ORBITING THE SUN! SO, LOG ON, AND KEEP YOUR EYES PEELED!
