Liftoff!

Friday, February 2, 2018: SpaceX launched another used Falcon 9 rocket on Wednesday (Jan. 31). The rocket lifted off from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station at 4:25 p.m. EST (2125 GMT) and delivered the GovSat-1 communications satellite into orbit. — Hanneke Weitering

'Atoms for Peace'

Monday, February 5, 2018: This pinwheel-shaped galaxy, officially named NGC 7252, earned its nickname "Atoms for Peace" because of its superficial resemblance to an atomic nucleus surrounded by a cloud of orbiting electrons. "Atoms for Peace" was also the title of a speech President Eisenhower gave in 1953, in which he promoted the use of nuclear power for peaceful purposes rather than nuclear weapons. This image was captured by the Hubble Space Telescope and processed by citizen scientist Judy Schmidt. — Hanneke Weitering

Ready for Launch

Tuesday, February 6, 2018: SpaceX's new Falcon Heavy rocket stands ready for its first test launch on historic Pad 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida.

Juno Flies by Jupiter

Thursday, February 8, 2018: NASA's Juno spacecraft took this photo of Jupiter's southern hemisphere during its ninth close flyby of the planet on Dec. 16, 2017. Juno scientists released the image yesterday (Feb. 7) as the spacecraft was completing its tenth such flyby. The spacecraft captured this image from 19,244 miles (30,970 kilometers) above Jupiter's cloud tops, and citizen scientist Gerald Eichstädt processed the raw data from the JunoCam imager to create this color-enhanced view. — Hanneke Weitering

'Ship Tracks' Spotted from Space

Friday, February 9, 2018: Circling the Earth at an altitude of about 500 miles (800 km), the European Space Agency's Copernicus Sentinel-3A satellite spotted a cluster of ship tracks in the Atlantic Ocean just off the coast of Portugal. But these tracks aren't left behind in the ship's wake; they're actually condensation trails or "contrails" in the atmosphere just like the trails that airplanes create. These ship tracks are created when water vapor condenses in a ship's exhaust fumes. — Hanneke Weitering

Super Blue Blood Moon Over Myanmar

Monday, February 12, 2018: During the Super Blue Blood Moon on Jan. 31, astrophotographer Nay Saw Aung captured this view of the partially eclipsed moon setting over the Shwedagon pagoda in Yangon, Myanmar. — Hanneke Weitering

Russia's Record-Breaking Spacewalk

Tuesday, February 13, 2018: A Russian cosmonaut works outside of the International Space Station's Zvezda module during a record-breaking spacewalk on Feb. 2. Clad in their Russian Orlan spacesuits, cosmonauts Alexander Misurkin and Anton Shkaplerov spent 8 hours and 13 minutes installing a new electronics box for a high-gain antenna and broke the record for the longest Russian spacewalk in history. — Hanneke Weitering

The Heart Nebula

Wednesday, February 14, 2018: The star-speckled Heart Nebula glows red with hydrogen gas in this deep-space image by astrophotographer Miguel Claro. At the cusp of its heart-shaped outline is another cloud of dust and gas known as the Fishhead Nebula. — Hanneke Weitering

Daily Readings

When the days were completed for their purification
according to the law of Moses,
Mary and Joseph took Jesus up to Jerusalem
to present him to the Lord,
just as it is written in the law of the Lord,
Every male that opens the womb shall be consecrated to the Lord,
and to offer the sacrifice of
a pair of turtledoves or two young pigeons,
in accordance with the dictate in the law of the Lord.

Now there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon.
This man was righteous and devout,
awaiting the consolation of Israel,
and the Holy Spirit was upon him.
It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit
that he should not see death
before he had seen the Christ of the Lord.
He came in the Spirit into the temple;
and when the parents brought in the child Jesus
to perform the custom of the law in regard to him,
he took him into his arms and blessed God, saying:

“Now, Master, you may let your servant go
in peace, according to your word,
for my eyes have seen your salvation,
which you prepared in the sight of all the peoples:
a light for revelation to the Gentiles,
and glory for your people Israel.”

The child’s father and mother were amazed at what was said about him;
and Simeon blessed them and said to Mary his mother,
“Behold, this child is destined
for the fall and rise of many in Israel,
and to be a sign that will be contradicted
—and you yourself a sword will pierce—
so that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.”
There was also a prophetess, Anna,
the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher.
She was advanced in years,
having lived seven years with her husband after her marriage,
and then as a widow until she was eighty-four.
She never left the temple,
but worshiped night and day with fasting and prayer.
And coming forward at that very time,
she gave thanks to God and spoke about the child
to all who were awaiting the redemption of Jerusalem.

When they had fulfilled all the prescriptions
of the law of the Lord,
they returned to Galilee, to their own town of Nazareth.
The child grew and became strong, filled with wisdom;
and the favor of God was upon him.
