+George Petersen true, the probability of that happening within the next 15 years is less than 1%. So... it would be a decimal.

That is truly an amazing photo of the star that gave us life and as long as its light keeps shining we will live, and when her time is up she will go out with a bang ending life, but the beauty of this is she will bring new life.....That's why there is no end to the universe, it goes on and on...........forever :)

The Lyrid meteor shower is happening now!

There's always a lull in meteor activity between early January and the Lyrid shower in late April. So the Lyrids kick off the 2014 meteor season each year. http://bit.ly/1fugis5

Tonight ... the waning gibbous moon and the red supergiant star Antares of the constellation Scorpius rise in the southeast late at night. They appear over the horizon only after the constellation Orion has set. According to ancient myths, Orion and the Scorpion are archenemies and never appear in the same sky together.
