Mercury's small, almost nothing at all. Venus is bright and near. Earth is a place with deep blue seas and a sky that is blue and clear. Mars is red and angry. Jupiter has an eye. Saturn has rings of ice and stone, that circle around its big huge sky. Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto are far away and cold. So now I know my planets, and I'm only forty-six years old.

New Aurora Pictures: Sky Shows Sparked by Sun Eruption

On September 11 a NASA satellite spied a magnetic eruption on the sun. A few days later northern skies got an electric shot of sheer beauty.

Thor’s Helmet Nebula - NGC 2359 (also known as Thor's Helmet) is an emission nebula in the constellation Canis Major. The nebula is approximately 15,000 light-years away and 30 light years in size. The central star is the Wolf-Rayet star HD 56925, an extremely hot giant thought to be in a brief, pre-supernova stage of evolution

"Dr Lugaro, from the Monash Centre for Astrophysics, said the team used radioactivity to date the last time that heavy elements such as gold, silver, platinum, lead and rare-earth elements were added to the solar system matter by the stars that produced them." Wow! Is or is not science out of this world!"

A Step closer to understanding the birth of the sun

Researchers are a step closer to understanding the birth of the sun. Scientists have investigated the solar system's prehistoric phase and the events that led to the birth of the sun.

One of the features that distinguishes Mercury from the other planets in our solar system are the enormous scarps, or cliffs, that run for hundreds of miles across its bleak surface.

Starry Night, so named because it reminded astronomers of the Van Gogh painting. It is a halo of light around a star in the Milky Way.

Hubble Comes of Age With Dramatic New Image

This dramatic look at Arp 273 shows the very photogenic group of interacting galaxies that glow bright with intense star formation, perhaps triggered by a little carousing the two galaxies are doing with each other as they approach and interact.

This image shows the spectacular stellar outburst of V838 Monocerotis in 2002. Scientists now suspect the outburst was caused by a so-called "common-envelope event," an outburst from two stars sharing a gas shell. Image released Jan. 24, 2013.

Mystery of Strange Star Outbursts May Be Solved

Scientists say they have made the first-ever detection of a strange type of star outburst that is neither a nova eruption nor a supernova. The discovery may solve a mystery of astronomy.
