Stargazers in the Northern Hemisphere finally get to see a recently discovered comet because its closer to Earth than its ever been before.
Sunday night, residents across South Florida who were looking up at the sky may have seen something quite different, a light show provided by a meteor hitting the Earth’s atmosphere.
It’s not going to hit us but a 150-foot-wide asteroid will come remarkably close to Earth Friday, even closer than high-flying communication and weather satellites. It will be the nearest known flyby for an object of this size in recorded history.
The space weather forecast for Earth looks a bit stormy this weekend, but scientists said not to worry.
It’s a bird. It’s a plane. No, it’s actually a “potentially hazardous” asteroid the size of a city block.
Wanna get mooned? Saturday night is the perfect time because following sunset on Saturday, the sky will be lit by a “supermoon”, the biggest and brightest full moon of the year.
Those fearful of a full moon might want to stay inside Saturday night to avoid the “Super Moon.” May’s full moon will hit on Saturday night into Sunday and is called a “super Moon” and will appear as much as 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than other full Moons of 2012
Our high-tech world seems to have weathered a solar storm that was still showing signs of life late Thursday.
A massive solar storm on the sun is about to have a major impact on earth. Radioactive particles from solar flares may soon start messing with everything from electricity to GPS systems. Fluctuations to some electrical power grids may also be experienced.
South Florida and the rest of the Earth is in the midst of the largest solar storm since 2005.
