The Carnival of Space.  Image credit: Jason MajorWelcome, everybody, to the second Carnival of Space for the year 2015. The carnival has been running for over six years now, and we continue to find new and amazing stories and contributors, so if you have any interest at all in space science or astronomy, this is the place to be! And if you'd like to join our stable of writers, just contact us via the link at the end to see if you qualify (spoiler: you do!)

We have a good turn-out this week, so let's get started:

Carnival of Space #383

Carnival of Space #383Another week, another Carnival of Space. We've been quiet here at Urban Astronomer while I work on a new project and (on a personal note) prepare for the birth of another child. But there's always time to curate a Carnival of Space so let's get started.

Carnival of Space #376

Carnival of SpaceWhat a weekend... I've had family visiting, a fire on the farm, and a once-in-a-lifetime encounter between a planet and Mars to photograph. Oh, and a Carnival of Space to publish. Something had to give, and unfortunately it was the Carnival. Sorry about that! But you didn't come here to read my excuses, you came for the latest and best writing on space science and astronomy, so if you just keep reading, I'll make sure that that's what you get.
