Carnival of Space
Here, they are 78, 77, and 76. *war scene*Leave no carnivals unposted!!!!
And in other news…
Phoenix, the Martian space probe on the Northern latitude is dead. *dramatic sob, NOOO!!!* We learned so much from it…

Finally, this is what happens when a moon from Saturn and part of Saturn’s ring collides.
