Space Weather News for Jan. 28, 2010

FULL MOON AND MARS: Friday night's full Moon is the biggest and brightest full Moon
of the year. It's a "perigee Moon," as much as 14% wider and 30% brighter than other
full Moons you'll see later in 2010. But that's not all. Mars is having a close
encounter with Earth, and on Friday night, Jan. 29th, it will join the Moon for an
all-night-long conjunction. Don't miss it! Sky maps and images may be found at

FLYBY ALERT: NASA is preparing to launch space shuttle Endeavour on Feb. 7th. It's
the last night launch of the shuttle program and it kicks off a 13-day mission to
the International Space Station (ISS). You can follow the ISS and Endeavour as they
streak across the night sky using our new Satellite Flybys app for the iPhone or
iPod Touch. Details at http://simpleflybys.com.
