A crow (or is it a raven?) interrupted a timelapse camera set up at Levi's Stadium to capture the transformation from NFL field to NHL ice rink in anticipation of the upcoming Stadium Series.

I'd love this to be my "go to" piece of music when I'm low, but unfortunately it can also push me to mania when it goes uptempo :-S
Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody is a good song for people to listen to if they feel unwell or down, a poll suggests.

Intruder star approaches a solar system

This suggests what could happen if a wandering star came near our solar system.

Of the original four planets, one is captured by the intruder star, one is ejected into empty space, and the other two have their orbits wildly disrupted.

There may be many lone planets in interstellar space, created by events like this.

This animation was created using a gravity simulation program developed by Eugene Butikov of St. Petersburg State University.

not sure why blue comes before green mind? :-/
 
First Moments of a Solar Flare in Different Wavelengths of Light - On Feb. 24, 2014, the sun emitted a significant solar flare, peaking at 7:49 p.m. EST. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), which keeps a constant watch on the sun, captured images of the event. These SDO images from 7:25 p.m. EST on Feb. 24 show the first moments of this X-class flare in different wavelengths of light -- seen as the bright spot that appears on the left limb of the sun. Hot solar material can be seen hovering above the active region in the sun's atmosphere, the corona.

Solar flares are powerful bursts of radiation, appearing as giant flashes of light in the SDO images. Harmful radiation from a flare cannot pass through Earth's atmosphere to physically affect humans on the ground, however -- when intense enough -- they can disturb the atmosphere in the layer where GPS and communications signals travel.
