A small icy object within the rings of Saturn might be a brand new moon in the process of being born.
Beautiful images of the ‘Blood Moon’ total lunar eclipse of April 14-15, 2014.
Seen from Earth, stars twinkle while planets shine steadily. Why?
A total eclipse moon has to happen at full moon. Outer planets are always near the full moon in their month of opposition. Mars reached opposition April 8 …
A lunar tetrad – four total lunar eclipses in a row – begins on the night of April 14-15. People are calling it a Blood Moon eclipse. Here’s why.

A total lunar eclipse is one of the most dramatic and beautiful – and easiest-to-view – of all astronomical events. There’s one coming up on the night of April 14-15.
Scientists have reconstructed a collision between the early Earth and an asteroid. It dwarfed the event that caused dinosaurs to go extinct 65 million years ago.
It looks like the diamond ring effect seen during total solar eclipses. It’s really a distant, dying star and its shell of gas, with another star in front of it.
The brightness of Mars in our sky depends on where our two planets are in orbit around the sun.
A new analysis says that 10.8 billion years ago, the universe was expanding by one percent every 44 million years.
Cameras mounted on the upper stage of a Soyuz rocket last week looked earthward during a satellite launch.
El Gordo – the largest galaxy cluster in the universe – is about 3 million billion times more massive than our sun, roughly 43 percent more massive than earlier estimates.
A large ocean under Enceladus’ icy surface supplies the water that’s been seen spraying out of the “tiger stripes” on its surface, suggests new research.
Throughout extended periods of its history, the surface of planet Mercury crackled with volcanic explosions, a new analysis suggests.
