The largest haul of fast radio burst observations ever recorded, all from a single fast radio burst, is helping astronomers understand what causes these fleeting cosmic phenomena
The COSI mission will study the recent history of star birth, star death, and the formation of chemical elements in the Milky Way.
A group of Japanese astronomers just discovered a potential new impact at the planet Jupiter.
The Moon may have formed in a one-two punch, new simulations suggest.
The city's parks, facilities, and streetlights will all get dark-sky-friendly lighting, but is it too early for amateur astronomers to get excited?
China's Chang'e 5 mission returned pieces of the Moon in a technological feat last year. Now, scientists are publishing the first analyses of those samples.
What seemed a lucky break — the discovery of a gamma-ray burst in the most distant known galaxy — might instead be the flash of passing space debris. As satellites fill low-Earth orbit, such events might become common.
Venus shines in twilight; watch Antares and the head of Scorpius slide toward it. Check out Jupiter, and hop from Saturn to two binocular double stars. The evenings are dark for deep-sky observing; the waning Moon crosses Leo before dawn.
Catch one of the most active small bodies in the solar system during a rare superoutburst.
