Last night the world was lucky enough to see a supermoon lunar eclipse. Hopefully you got to see it in person—but if not, here are some of the best pictures so far of the stellar spectacle.
Got plans for the weekend? You do now, friend! There’s a Supermoon Eclipse on Sunday night into Monday morning—and we’re all going to watch it. Here’s how, when, and also why to catch the Supermoon Lunar Eclipse.
Many comics legends have worked on Miracleman, but no run on the series is as fondly remembered as Neil Gaiman and Mark Buckingham’s, cut short before its time. But now Marvel isn’t just remastering Gaiman and Buckingham’s original comics, but letting them finish the story they began 25 years ago.
The European Space Agency's PROBA-2 minisatellite caught the March 20th solar eclipse, with the ESA creating a time-lapse video of its images. See the full video below, and images of it from the ISS.
Unfortunately, it was too cloudy in London for this carefully (and, might we say, rather snappily) attired canine to observe yesterday's eclipse.
If you've seen a solar eclipse, you know that just before the sun is hidden from view something very strange happens. Shadows start swirling, as if the light from the sun is shining through a heat haze. The phenomenon is called "shadow bands."
Superstitions have surrounded the eerie solar eclipse since time immemorial. And now, for entirely scientific reasons, it turns out we have good reason to fear them. Earth's biggest solar eclipse since 1999 is happening this March, and it could cause some real disruption—thanks to Europe's reliance on solar energy.
The International Year of Light continues with a beautiful gallery celebrating all aspects of light: multispectral astronomical, technological innovations, bioluminescence, eclipses, and even noctilucent clouds. I'll say this for it: this is the most visually interesting and diverse "Year of..." celebration!
The Solar Dynamics Observatory is in an inclined geosynchronous orbit to give it an almost-continuous view of the sun. This position gives it a unique perspective, watching lunar transits us here down on Earth never even see.
A partial solar eclipse was visible from much of North America yesterday afternoon, resulting in a flood of gobstopping astrophotography. This shot comes from the folks at Joshua Tree National Park. For more, we recommend SpaceWeather.com and the eclipse hashtag on Twitter.
On the afternoon of October 23, 2014, a partial solar eclipse will be visible from most of North America. Here's everything you need to know to catch a glimpse – and how to do it safely.
As millions of people observed the total lunar eclipse on October 8th, NASA's MESSENGER probe was also watching from its orbit around Mercury. The spacecraft, 66 million miles from Earth, captured several images of the Moon as it passed behind Earth and into the planet's shadow.
This amazing footage shows you what it would like to watch a partial solar eclipse from space. One of the differences right away is that, due to the lack of atmosphere around the moon, there's no fuzziness along the edge between the moon and the sun, but just as different are the colors.
The Yutu rover is now scouring the lunar surface on a three-month mission to explore the dark lava plains of the Bay of Rainbows. The Chinese probe is also set to leave behind a powerful telescope. Here's what Yutu will see when it peers towards Earth — and what the eclipse of April 15th, 2014, might look like.
Seriously. Just LOOK AT IT.
The last solar eclipse of the year is happening on Sunday, and it's a weird one. Here's where, when, and how to catch Sunday's rare hybrid solar eclipse.
Last year saw the most recent transit of Venus, as our planetary sibling passed directly between the Sun and our planet. It's an exceedingly rare event—the next one isn't due until 2117, and that's actually a bit ahead of the normal schedule. But what exactly is the Transit of Venus? In a sense, it's just a really …
For the first time ever, scientists have captured images of a moon passing directly in front of another as seen from the surface of an alien planet.
During a total solar eclipse, our view of the Sun's disk is blocked entirely by the Moon. The Sun's corona, however, remains very much in view – a roiling wreath of spellbinding atmospheric activity.
