The sun's outer atmosphere was captured at previously impossible extreme ultraviolet wavelengths thanks to a last-minute engineering hack.
NASA's Parker Solar Probe plunged through a hellish coronal mass ejection (CME) to capture its mysterious swirlings on film.
New research suggests that the sun may hold dark matter in its fiery heart, and ghostly particles called neutrinos could lead us to it.
The sun has launched a surprise CME directly at Mars, which could spark auroras and damage the Red Planet's atmosphere when it hits on Sept. 1.
So-called 'picojets' spotted by ESA's Solar Orbiter could be feeding high-speed gas outflows from the sun in the form of both energy and matter.
On Oct. 14, an epic 'ring of fire' annular solar eclipse will swoop across North America, providing once-in-a-lifetime views for several states. Here’s how to watch, no matter where you are.
The sun is Earth's closest star, yet its beauty is too intense to appreciate with the naked eye. Here are some of the most stunning solar images that our satellites and telescopes have captured.
The sun's corona is 200 times hotter than its surface, defying models of stellar bodies. Now, this 80-year-old puzzle may finally have a solution.
Instruments in different parts of the solar system all captured radiation from the same coronal mass ejection for the first time ever.
