      * Rare Planet Alignment in April and May

      Several planets are assembling toward a rare alignment later
      this month, when five of them will crowd into a patch of sky
      small enough that all will be visible in a single glance. The
      setup will provide a planet-watching opportunity that won't be
      repeated for a century.

      * Mars Odyssey's Picture of the Day: Ganges Chasma Landslide

      Scientists released the first of many raw images of Mars,
      provided by the Mars Odyssey spacecraft, that they plan to
      provide in coming weeks. Odyssey's Thermal Emission Imaging
      System (THEMIS) captures the images as the craft orbits Mars.

      * Mystery of Black Water off Florida Solved

      A mysterious patch of black water off the Florida coast, the
      extent of which was detailed by satellite images, is most likely
      the result of a bloom of algae, officials said today after
      examining the results of water tests.
