Aiming Parker Solar Probe at the Sun with Simulink GNC Software

You can read an article that I helped prepare about this mission in this link.

Recent observations

After about some 15 years, I got to point a telescope to a comet and report back its visual appearance. The reported observation was included in the Comet Observation Database (COBS). If you are into observing comets, would mind telling me how you report your observations? You can send me a message via Twitter or e-mail. Thank you!

Looking ahead

It seems like it has been a long while since we've had a bright comet in the sky. As usual, we are cautious about publicizing too much about new comets and we should do similarly in this case, because we never know if they will simply disappoint. But it sounds like we might want to keep an eye on a comet that is going through perihelion recently and might give us a show in July and August. It's comet C/2020 F3 (NEOWISE)! I know I am looking forward to it. Wanna learn more? Check out my stargazing pages.
