In back to back days, the sun appeared to melt into the horizon due to a trippy optical illusion called the "Omega sun."
The woman was sat on her porch when she heard a loud "bang" from the roof and a pebble-size rock pinged into her chest. But not everyone is convinced it was a meteorite.
A small badger-like mammal and a juvenile bipedal dinosaur were locked in a battle to the death 125 million years ago when they were both killed and perfectly preserved by a volcanic mudflow.
Two coronal mass ejections have combined into an enormous cloud of magnetized plasma that is forecast to hit Earth on Tuesday and potentially trigger a weak geomagnetic storm.
Experts abandoned the autopsy of a dead fin whale after they heard bubbling noises from the creature's gut, indicating there was a chance it could explode if opened.
The brown dwarf, which is colder than a typical campfire, produces regular radio wave pulses despite having a magnetic field that, in theory, should be too weak to create them.
Photographers hoping to capture stunning "night-shining" clouds have been left frustrated this year. The fast-approaching solar maximum may be to blame.
New research finds that SpaceX's Starlink satellites are leaking radiation that could interfere with radio astronomy.
A distant planet named LTT9779 b reflects 80% of its star's light, making the strange world with metal clouds the biggest known "mirror" in the universe.
Researchers have calculated the "ninth Dedekind number," which belongs to an exponentially complex series of numbers that define outputs of logical functions based on different spatial dimensions.
The newfound extinct species is remarkably similar to the living "little penguin," which only weighs around 2 pounds.
The number of sunspots in June was higher than any month during the current or previous solar cycles, suggesting the upcoming solar peak will be far more active than initially anticipated.
The enormous dark patch and its powerful eruption are both signs that the solar maximum is fast approaching — and could be more active than expected.
The mother repeatedly tried to catch the dead infant's gaze before throwing the corpse around her enclosure and eventually devouring it.
"Simultaneous contrast illusions" rely on altering the backgrounds of images to change how we perceive the colors and brightness of objects within them. Now, a computer model may have revealed exactly how they fool us.
The slender "gulper eel" can unhinge its jaw and expand its throat, enabling it to eat squid-sized prey in a single gulp.
The ethereal aurora-like light show could become a more common sight over the next few years as the sun's activity continues to ramp up.
The newly discovered duck-billed dinosaur, Gonkoken nanoi, likely grew to around 13 feet long and weighed up to 1 ton, new analysis reveals.
The sun is quickly approaching a major peak in solar activity. Experts warn it could potentially begin by the end of 2023, years before initial predictions suggested.
The atmospheric temperature spike, which was caused by geomagnetic storms triggered by the sun, suggests the "solar maximum" is fast approaching.
The photographer combined individual images collected over a 50-minute period during an intense thunderstorm in Turkey.
The armored ankylosaur is more closely related to dinosaurs found in China than its UK relatives, hinting at a previously unknown migration for the group.
The new panorama snapped by NASA's Curiosity rover combines photos from two different times of day to create a highly detailed image of the Red Planet.
New research has revealed that the children of Kathleen Folbigg each had genetic mutations that could explain their deaths.
For only the second time, astronomers have discovered multiple "Tatooine worlds," or circumbinary planets, in the same star system.
