Tuesday, January 1, 2019, is New Year’s Day, a U.S. federal holiday.  Most government offices will be closed.

Happy New Year!  And don’t forget that today is the day NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft is flying past a Kuiper Belt Object (KBO) nicknamed Ultima Thule, which is 4 billions miles from Earth.

Closest approach is at 12:33 am Eastern Standard Time (EST).  A spacecraft health status check is scheduled for 10:00 am EST.
