Late Hollywood actor Marlon Brando’s beloved Harley-Davidson motorcycle will be auctioned in Beverly Hills on Saturday.

The Oscar-winning actor’s 1969 Harley-Davidson FLH Electra-Glide motorcycle is expected to fetch between $200,000 to $400,000 as it “could be the only Brando motorcycle available.”

“My father was bigger than life and everything he did was often celebrated by fans around the globe.

“My hope is that many of the items coming up for auction this weekend at Julien’s Auctions will offer a small glimpse into the life of my father, who happened to also be one of the world’s most loved and famous actors of our time,” Mike Brando, the “Godfather” star’s son, told people.com.

The late star previously spoke of how much he enjoyed getting on the bike, which he purchased in 1970, for late-night rides around New York City.

According to Julien’s Auctions, who are conducting the sale, he once said: “It still pleases me to be awake during the dark, early hours before morning when everyone else is still asleep. I’ve been that way since I first moved to New York. I do my best thinking and writing then.

“During those early years in New York, I often got on my motorcycle in the middle of the night and went for a ride anyplace. There wasn’t much crime in the city then, and if you owned a motorcycle, you left it outside your apartment and in the morning it was still there.

“It was wonderful on summer nights to cruise around the city at one, two, three a.m. wearing jeans and a just a T-shirt with a girl on the seat behind me. If I didn’t start out with one, I’d find one.”

"The discovery of each new world provides a unique glimpse into the physics that play a role in planet formation," said lead author Jon Zink, a UCLA postdoctoral scholar.

An international team of astronomers has identified 366 new exoplanets, using data from the NASA Kepler Space Telescope's K2 mission. The findings, described in a paper published in the Astronomical Journal, showed a planetary system that comprises a star and at least two gas giant planets, each roughly the size of Saturn and located unusually close to one another.

The discovery is significant because it's rare to find gas giants -- like Saturn in the solar system -- as close to their host star as they were in this case. The researchers cannot yet explain why it occurred there, but it makes the finding especially useful because it could help scientists form a more accurate understanding of the parameters for how planets and planetary systems develop.

The winter comes with its own set of hassles. New moms have to be careful because they have to take care of themselves and their babies. It becomes imperative to protect babies from the harsh season. The immune system of newborn babies is developing, which makes them susceptible to respiratory infections. But, you can take preventive measures to keep your child warm and safe. Newborn babies need extra care until their immune system becomes stronger to protect their bodies from the harmful effects of viruses and bacteria that usually become more active in the winter season. A drop in the temperature can aggravate different processes in the body, therefore, moms need to take extra care of newborn babies during winters.
