Send a Card, Declare Your Love - For Comets

On Feb. 14, NASA's Stardust spacecraft will set its loving gaze on comet Tempel 1. And it got us thinking; don't all comets deserve a day of love - even the ones that are flying solo this Valentine's Day? We say, yes.

So we've set up a little campaign to let you spread the love when you send one of our free Comet eCards or tell us why you "heart" comets by text, tweet or Facebook post. We'll even throw in a free "I <3 Comets" badge for all participants, making this the most stellar gift you can give this Valentine's Day.

Here's How It Works:

We'll be gauging your love for comets via our Love Comet-O-Meter above. Each time you send an eCard, tweet about your love using our hash tag #comet and @NASAJPL, or comment about why you heart comets on our Facebook widget, the Love Comet-O-Meter will get one step closer to its goal and you'll get a free badge to post anywhere you please.

How Do You Heart Comets? Let Us Count the Ways ...

eCard: Select a design from the options above to send your eCard to a special someone. It only takes two steps to send a card, then voila! You'll receive your very own "I <3 Comets" badge.

Text: Take out your cell phone and text HEARTCOMETS to 67463 (msg. and data rates may apply). From there, all you have to do is reply to the message with your declaration of love, and we'll text you back a link to download the "I <3 Comets" badge, plus a link where you can see your comment go live. (Phone numbers will not be published).

Twitter: Tell us why you heart comets by including our hash tag #comet and @NASAJPL in your tweets and see them displayed on our live Twitter stream (located in the Join the Conversation box). To get your "I <3 Comets" badge, follow @NASAJPL and look for our tweet on the evening of Feb. 15 with more on how to download the free badge.

Facebook: Click on the Facebook tab under the Join the Conversation box (right). From here, you can comment on the campaign and tell us all the reasons you heart comets. Then get a link to download your "I <3 Comets" badge on our Facebook page on the evening of Feb. 15.
