Granted that not everything spooky is on planet Earth but who knew the folks at NASA would find an unusual way to celebrate Halloween.

Check out their galaxy of horrors and solar sounds.

Galaxy of Horrors

It has, among other spaces and places, a Galactic Graveyard, Dark Matter section Zombie Gamma Ray Ghouls, Monster Mash and Zombie Worlds. Visit them, if you dare.

Sinister Sounds of the Solar System

While you welcome ghoulish guests to your earthly domain you may want to play some of these noises that have been gathered from space.

Visiting Mars may not be far off.

Although there are already rovers and items that have landed, orbited and explored Mars, a new rover is about to take off for the red planet.

Earthlings can watch NASA’s Perseverance Rover launch July 30, 2020.

Register to join the countdown so the launch isn’t missed.

The rover will arrive on Mars Feb. 18, 2021.

Its mission is to seek ancient life and prepare for human exploration.
