Welcome, come in to the 521st Carnival of Space! The Carnival is a community of space science and astronomy writers and bloggers, who submit their best work each week for your benefit. I’m Susie Murph, part of the team at Universe Today and CosmoQuest. So now, on to this week’s stories!

First, we go over to Urban Astronomer where Allen Versefeld shares an interview with Australian astrophotographer and science defender Dylan O’Donnell, as he recounts his conversation with a man who believes that the Earth is flat on YouTube.

Next, we return here to Universe Today. First up, David Dickinson shares how A Partial Lunar Eclipse Ushers in Eclipse Season.

Then Matt Williams shares how an Impending Asteroid Flyby Will be a Chance to Test NASA’s Planetary Defense Network!

Next up, Matt presents the gorgeous graphics as Hubble Eyes Stratosphere Around a Very Hot, Watery Jupiter!

Finally, Matt details how Kepler Spots the First Exomoon Candidate 4000 Light Years From Earth.

Thank you for all of your stories – we’ll see you next week!
