Mars in opposition means it will be visible all night, starting in the east after sunset, before disappearing into the western horizon around sunrise.
By studying the stellar activity on young stars, in particular, scientists can help get a view of what our young Sun may have been like.
Looking among the 4,500 known exoplanets, 24 planets were shortlisted that ranged from anywhere between five billion years and eight billion years old.
Some nuclear star clusters in our galaxy must have been formed from objects falling into black holes, the research suggests.
Astronomers using the Catalina Sky Survey in Arizona first detected the object, saying it could be a possible mini-moon and named it 2020 SO.
Autumn Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere on 22 Sept: Significance, everything else you need to know
The two equinoxes take place when the Sun is exactly above the equator.
This period of space weather can have some wide-ranging implications for technology on Earth as well as astronaut safety.
Glimpse of our system once the Sun is dead? First Jupiter-sized exoplanet found orbiting white dwarf star
Past research has indicated that some white dwarf stars can retain some of the more distant remnants of their planetary systems.
The near-earth object with its massive size and close proximity, however, has no chance of hitting our homeworld, assured NASA.
NASA funds five 'concept mission' studies to the Sun; two will be chosen to carry out their missions
The five shortlisted proposals are will each receive $1.25 million from NASA to carry out a nine-month mission concept study.
NASA’s Hubble telescope captured close-up shots of the coma of the comet which is the cloud of gas and dust that surrounds the icy nucleus of the comet.
Making global maps of the coronal magnetic field strength will allow researchers to “eventually get better predictions of space weather events”.
Black Moon on 19 August: Invisible fourth 'New Moon' in Northern Hemisphere appears due to calendar quirk
A second full moon in a single calendar month is a Blue Moon, and the flip side of this phenomenon, a Black Moon.
To study the boundary of interstellar space, scientists studied cosmic rays moving towards Earth from different parts of the galaxy.
Massive sunspot is turning towards Earth this can result in major solar flares that can effect electrical systems
These sunspots occur on the photosphere region of the sun and can be huge in size - up to 50,000 kilometres in diameter
Solar maps showed active areas which can be observed on the maps as hotter areas than the rest of the solar surface.
People in their 20's and 50's were also found to be more at-risk for COVID-19 in the study, due to social gatherings and comorbid conditions.
The star, located in the Fly constellation, is barely 17 million years old and by contrast, our sun is 4.5 billion years old.
Campfires, researchers say, could be tiny versions of solar flares or an entirely new phenomenon that isn't yet understood.
The first space rock that the scientists discovered was the asteroid 514107 Ka'epaoka'awela which means 'mischievous opposite-moving companion of Jupiter.'
