Just how vast is our solar system? An eye-opening new animation (above) really puts things in perspective. It shows that even if you travel at the speed of light (186,000 miles per second), the trek from the sun to the Earth and other planets tak...

As the Chinese proverb says, “May you live in interesting times,” and while the promise of Comet ISON dazzling observers didn’t exactly pan out as hoped for in early 2014, we now have a bevy of binocular comets set to grace evening skies for northern hemisphere observers. Comet 2012 K1 PanSTARRS has put on a fine show,…

I've just learned that BL86's moon was actually discovered in earlier light curve data from two individual observers - Joseph Pollock of Appalachian State University and Petr Prave of Poland's Ondrejov Observatory - and that the Goldstone radar data simply confirmed it. The NASA article errs in not making that point.
