Headlines presented here without comment. It's Make-Your-Own-Sun-Joke Day.

An Ohio woman has been jailed for allowing her three children to get severely sunburned at a county fair. The woman, Eve Hibbits, 31, of Brilliant, Ohio, faces three felony counts of endangering her 2-year-old daughter and 10-month-old twin sons. She is scheduled to have a preliminary hearing today. "As soon as I looked at them I could tell," said Sheriff Fred Abdalla of Jefferson County, in eastern Ohio. "It looked like the children had been dipped in red paint. It was 95 degrees, and they were literally baking."

NASA said today that it had found a missing $159 million spacecraft, thanks to a half-dozen telescope images that confirmed that the craft, possibly broken in two, was orbiting the Sun.
