    Note: Make sure you have the volume on. The eclipse is cool, but it's the guy's excitement and commentary that really make the video. This is a video of the March 8th solar eclipse captured by astronomer Mike Kentrianakis at 35,000 feet aboard an Alaskan Airlines flight fro... / Continue →

    This is a stunning 4K timelapse of the sun from January 1, 2015 to January 28, 2016. It was captured by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, which orbits earth. Hopefully they make another timelapse this year so you can all see me whizzing by on my way to my fiery death. SDO's... / Continue →

    This is a visual representation of how many earths could fit inside the sun, provided there are actually 1.3-million little blue balls in that plastic sphere. Are there? I have no clue. I've never been good at those 'guess how many gumballs are in the jar' games. I am not v... / Continue →

    This is a timelapse released from NASA of the sun shot in various wavelengths to celebrate the five year anniversary of the Solar Dynamics Observatory being in space (and taking all the pictures used for the videos). What's your favorite wavelength? I think mine is just long ... / Continue →

    This is 'Riding Light', a video imagining the camera as a ray of light traveling away from the sun towards the planets of the solar system at the speed of light. Feel free to skip around though, because the video is over 43-minutes long (the time it takes for light to reach Ju... / Continue →

    In rare good news, astrobiologists have determined the earth should be habitable for at least another 1.75-billion years. For reference, that's 1.75-billion years minus 50 years more than I care about. The research was led by Andrew Rushby, from UEA's school of Environmenta... / Continue →

    In news that shouldn't surprise anyone who likes to punish themselves by staring at the sun, our star is beautiful. And I'm not just saying that because without it we wouldn't be here, because I would actually prefer that. This is 'Jewel Box Sun', a video from NASA showing th... / Continue →

    Note: Worthwhile larger shot HERE in case you want to burn your retinas out. This is a composite shot of our sun showing 365-days worth of solar storm activity. Can you imagine if all those storms had happened at once? I bet we'd lose cell phone coverage. OR WOULD WE ALL PE... / Continue →

    Astronomers have discovered what they believe is a five-planet solar system orbiting Tau Ceti, a star with very similar luminosity to our sun. And one of those planets is the proper distance away from its sun "to sport mild temperatures, oceans of liquid water, and even life." ... / Continue →

    Give it to me straight, is that where Dr. Manhattan is from or not? A rogue planet with no star to orbit was recently discovered 100-light years away from earth. It's caused scientists to speculate that sunless planets are a lot more common than previously thought and realize... / Continue →
