The more astronomers consider the advent of satellite megaconstellations, the more anxious they get.
For the first time, astrophysicists have detected a pattern in fast radio bursts, one of the most mysterious phenomena in the universe.
The Dipper is more than just a bright and familiar star pattern. It's a compass, a clock, a calendar and a ruler all rolled into one!
One of the brightest stars you'll see in the sky these days is Betelgeuse, whose red tones provide a fun skywatching target in February.

A stunning rainbow-colored cloud of gas surrounds a pair of stars that duked it out a few hundred years ago.
Sometimes the forming star swallows up a huge amount of matter, resulting in a burst of activities in the massive star.
It was a big moment for our cosmos when the first stars awoke, but it's an elusive one for scientists.
The best infrared eye in the universe has closed, and scientists will need to wait at least a year before any similar instrument is at work again.
The way the fabric of space and time swirls in a cosmic whirlpool around a dead star has confirmed yet another prediction from Einstein's theory of general relativity, a new study finds.
One of NASA's great telescopes will go offline today (Jan. 30) after 16.5 years of observations that helped to paint a more complete picture of the universe.
This rare finding was made by "accident," according to the research team that found the super-outburst.
NASA is bidding goodbye to a premier space telescope, one that let scientists peer into the dusty corners of the universe.
The outer layers of superdense stellar remnants known as white dwarfs may often possess the remains of giant planets, a new study suggests.
