A new species of sunfish has been discovered by researchers for the first time in 130 years. The giant new sunfish, named the "Hoodwinker Sunfish" (Mola tecta), has been found in the cold ocean waters of New Zealand, South Africa, southern Chile and the southeast coast of Australia. According to researchers, the previously unnamed species has eluded discovery for almost three centuries.

The discovery was made by an international team of researchers led by Marianne Nyegaard, a PhD student at Murdoch University. The new species was discovered while researching the population genetics of ocean sunfish. According to Nyegaard, although Japanese researchers had first found genetic evidence of the bizarre sunfish species in Australian waters 10 years ago, it still eluded discovery because the scientific community didn't know what the fish looked like.

Cassiopeia A - The colorful aftermath of a violent stellar death
 
A new image taken with the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope provides a detailed look at the tattered remains of a supernova explosion known as Cassiopeia A (Cas A). It is the youngest known remnant from a supernova explosion in the Milky Way. The new Hubble image shows the complex and intricate structure of the star's shattered fragments.
 
Cas A
 
One of the most famous objects in the sky - the Cassiopeia A supernova remnant - will be on display like never before, thanks to NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory and a new project from the Smithsonian Institution. A new three-dimensional (3D) viewer, being unveiled this week, will allow users to interact with many one-of-a-kind objects from the Smithsonian as part of a large-scale effort to digitize many of the Institutions objects and artifacts.

Not just beautiful, though...the stars are like the trees in the forest, alive and breathing. And they're watching me. ~ Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore....
