Celebrating a Super Moon, August 10, 2014

The technical name is the 'perigee-syzygy' of the Earth-Moon-Sun system.

Lunar eclipses do not occur every month because the moon usually passes above or below the … [Read more...]

The Comet Pan-STARRS will be 28 million miles (45 million kilometers) from the surface of the sun when it swings around the star today, and should be bright enough to see without the aid of telescopes or binoculars, weather permitting.
