Even star systems have identity crises. 🤷 According to data from observatories like our @nasachandraxray, a double star system has been rapidly flipping between two alter egos: a low-mass X-ray binary and a millisecond pulsar. Astronomers found this volatile double system in a dense collection of stars known as Terzan 5. The first image from @NASAHubble shows Terzan 5 in optical light. Swipe to see the new image where low, medium and high-energy X-rays detected by Chandra are colored red, green and blue respectively. Click the link in bio for more.

How much water does Jupiter really have? 🤔 In Roman mythology, the god Jupiter drew a veil of clouds around himself to hide his mischief. It was only Jupiter's wife, the goddess Juno, who could peer through the clouds and reveal Jupiter's true nature. Our @NASAJuno spacecraft is looking beneath the clouds of the massive gas giant, not seeking signs of misbehavior, but helping us to understand the planet's structure and history... Now, @NASAJuno just published its first findings on the amount of water in the gas giant’s atmosphere. An accurate total estimate of this water is critical to solving the mystery of how our solar system formed. Click the link in bio for more. 👀 Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/SwRI/MSSS/Kevin M.

Pluto still has our heart 💙 90 years ago today, astronomer Clyde Tombaugh discovered Pluto! Flip through to see some of its majestic features. 📷 2: Pluto’s mysterious icy heart which contains three kinds of ices – frozen nitrogen, methane and carbon monoxide. 📷 3: The smooth expanse of the informally named icy plain Sputnik Planum (right) flanked to the west (left) by rugged mountains up to 11,000 feet high. 📷 4: Pluto in true color. Four images from our New Horizons' Long Range Reconnaissance Imager (LORRI) were combined with color data from the Ralph instrument to create this global view of Pluto.

A postcard from the edge of space. These electric-blue clouds are only visible when the Sun is below the Earth's horizon and illuminates them. Pictured from 269 miles above the South Pacific on an orbiting International Space Station, noctilucent clouds, or night shining clouds, are the highest clouds in the Earth's atmosphere.
