Happy Halloween Everyone

Hey SPace Placers!

Well, the trick or treaters will be out in force tonight as Halloween is upon us - hard to believe that November is here already.

In the DC area we will probably be clouded out but for the rest of you that enjoy clear skies tonight be sure to check out the Moon in the south, Jupiter in the east and the summer triangle directly overhead.

Russia recently launched its supply rocket to the ISS successfully so the logistics chain is back in place (if the supply ship docks OK).

NASA is getting ready to launch the newest Mars mission - Curiosity - this week. I will have more on that as we get closer to the launch window. NASA is doing the final touched on the spacecraft and launcher this week at Kennedy Space Center.

Have a safe and candy successful night!
