The Sun has a fluffy corona

The Sun has a fluffy corona according to the latest images captured by ESA's Solar Orbiter. The hair-like structures are made of charged gas (plasma), following magnetic field lines emerging from the ...

Wispy hair-like filaments of pink-purple fill the middle of the image, curving left and right on either side of the centre. On the right, the filaments form a dramatic loop that seems to extend toward the viewer. At lower left are additional yellowish filaments. Two prominent, bright stars near the centre of the image show Webb’s eight-point diffraction spikes. Dozens of fainter stars are scattered across the image

Webb finds the smallest free-floating brown dwarf

Webb finds the smallest free-floating brown dwarf, which are also known as failed stars. Scientists imaged the centre of a cluster using Webb’s NIRCam and find three brown dwarfs.

The bright white object at lower left is the asteroid Dimorphos. It has a blue dust tail extending diagonally to the upper right. A cluster of blue dots surrounds the asteroid. These are boulders that were knocked off the asteroid when, on 26 September 2022, NASA deliberately slammed the half-tonne DART impactor spacecraft into the asteroid as a test of what it would take to deflect some future asteroid from hitting Earth. Hubble photographed the slow-moving boulders in December 2022.] Credit: NASA, ESA, D. Jewitt (UCLA)

Hubble spots boulder debris ejected by asteroid impact mission

Astronomers have discovered a swarm of boulders ejected from asteroid Dimorphos after it was impacted by the DART spacecraft. The 37 boulders, which range in size from 1 meter to 6.7 meters across, we...

Images of the Milky Way and the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) are overlaid on a map of the surrounding galactic halo. The smaller structure is a wake created by the LMC’s motion through this region. The larger light-blue feature corresponds to a high density of stars observed in the northern hemisphere of our galaxy. Credits: NASA/ESA/JPL-Caltech/Conroy et. al. 2021
