NASA Captures Another Massive Solar Flare On January 27: Video
2012-01-30 10:35:37

[ Watch the Video ] The sun unleashed an X1.8 class flare that began at 1:12 PM ET on January 27, 2012 and peaked at 1:37. The flare immediately caused a strong radio blackout at low-latitudes, which was rated an R3 on NOAA's scale from R1-5. The blackout soon subsided to a minor R1 storm. Models from NASA's Goddard Space Weather Center predict that the CME is traveling at over 1500 miles per second. It does not initially appear to be Earth-directed, but Earth may get a glancing blow....

The largest solar particle event since 2005 hit the Earth, Mars and the Mars Science Laboratory spacecraft travelling in-between, allowing the onboard Radiation Assessment Detector to measure the radiation a human astronaut could be exposed to en route to the Red Planet.   On Sunday, a huge coronal mass ejection erupted from the surface of the sun, spewing a cloud of charged particles in our direction, causing a strong "S3" solar storm. A NASA Goddard Space Weather Lab animation of the...

NASA Says UFO Seen On Video Is Actually Trick Of Light
2012-01-20 06:00:31

NASA scientists used the laws of physics on Thursday to publicly debunk conspiracy theorists that claim the space agency is engaging in an elaborate UFO cover-up scheme. The controversy stems from a bizarre, triangle shaped objected seen on video captured December 27 -29 by NASA´s STEREO-B spacecraft -- one of two probes parked on either side of the sun which, together, give a 360-degree view of the inner solar system. The alien hunters say the footage shows Venus, Earth and, on...

First Comet Spotted By Ground-Based Telescope In Almost 40 Years
2011-12-14 11:19:11

[ Watch the Video ] Australian astronomer Terry Lovejoy spotted a Kreutz family comet by using a ground-based telescope for the first time since the 1970s. Lovejoy announced he discovered C/2011 W3, or comet Lovejoy, from the ground on December 2, 2011. NASA's Solar Heliophysics Observatory (SOHO) has spotted over 2100 comets, most of which are from the Kreutz family.  This family of comets graze the solar atmosphere where they usually evaporate completely. Discovering a...

[ Watch Video 1 ] | [ Watch Video 2 ] On October 25, 2006 a Delta II rocket launched from Cape Canaveral carrying two nearly identical spacecraft. Each satellite was one half of a mission entitled Solar TErrestrial RElations Observatory (STEREO) and they were destined to do something never done before — see the entire sun simultaneously. The sun rotates, of course, so there's no part of the sun we haven't at some point observed from our vantage point on Earth. But watching this...
