NASA spacecraft reveals travels of China's Yutu 2 rover on far side of the moon
The Chang'e 4 lander (right) and Yutu 2 (left) spotted by NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter in October 2020.

NASA probe snaps 'great conjunction' photo of Jupiter and Saturn from the moon
(Image credit: NASA/GSFC/Arizona State University)A moon-orbiting probe got a stunning up-close view of the " great conjunction " of Jupiter and Saturn from Earth's rocky satellite. Monday (Dec. 21), Jupiter and Saturn appeared closer in the night sky than they had in about 800 years during what's known as a "great conjunction." On Dec. 21, 2020, Jupiter and Saturn appeared just one-tenth of a degree apart, or about the thickness of a dime held at arm's length, according to NASA. During the event, known as a "great conjunction," the two planets (and their moons) were visible in the same field of view through binoculars or a telescope. While Jupiter and Saturn have a close conjunction once every 20 years, the planets haven't appeared this close since 1623.space.com

From Tempe to places like Bloomington, Indiana, and Gainesville, Florida, the looming undercount could harm college towns across the country. The Census Bureau says college students should be counted where they would have been on April 1 at school if not for the outbreak. College students overwhelm the demography of places with large universities, Poston said.
