Hey Space Placers!

Look at the first image taken by NASA's new exoplanet hunter - TESS.

TESS image of Large Magellanic Cloud, right, and the star R Doradus, left
The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) took this snapshot of the Large Magellanic Cloud (right) and the bright star R Doradus (left) with just a single detector of one of its cameras on Tuesday, Aug. 7. The frame is part of a swath of the southern sky TESS captured in its “first light” science image as part of its initial round of data collection.

I LOVE the first light image that shows the Large Magellanic Cloud! One of my fave places in the sky and Universe........

Learn more about TESS......

I look forward to the worlds that TESS will discover......
