August 8, 2018 9:41 AM Flat-earther confounded by shape of all the other planets

A MAN who believes that the earth is flat has been confounded by the shape of every single other planet. Julian Cook was explaining how if the earth was round cars would be drifting to the left all the time when a workmate showed him some photographs of every other planet in the solar system. Cook said: “Uhhhh, they are round because of a process called 63

July 27, 2018 4:23 AM Lunar eclipse: Skygazers await century's longest 'blood moon'

Skywatchers will be treated to the longest "blood moon" eclipse of the 21st Century on Friday. As it rises, during this total eclipse, Earth's natural satellite will turn a striking shade of red or ruddy brown. The "totality" period, when light from the Moon is totally obscured, will last for one hour, 43 minutes. The eclipse is visible from Europe 58

July 8, 2018 9:41 PM Why are some signs affected more?

The reason why various signs feel some of the retrogrades more than others is two-fold. Firstly, it depends on which sign the planets are in while they retrograde. If a planet is retrograding in your sign or your opposite sign, you’re going to feel it more. The same applies if the planet is in a sign three away from yours in either direction. It also depends 51

January 10, 2018 2:57 PM Of all the planetary systems in the Milky Way galaxy, our Solar system is quite unusual

The new research has implications for understanding how planetary systems form. If you are asked to imagine what a typical planetary system looks like, you will most likely picture something similar to our own solar system. However, new research suggests that our small corner of the galaxy may be more unusual than we thought. The findings have led researchers 96

December 16, 2017 2:20 PM Blue planet captured in photograph taken in Rochester

A Medway man captured a picture which seems to show a blue planet clearly in the sky. Gintas Indriliunas, 29, said his wife Lenka, 30, noticed one planet-shaped object in the sky and asked him to take the photo. The snap snows a blue-tinged orb with what looks like a line through it.

November 30, 2017 12:01 PM Elon Musk asked 'why is there no Flat Mars Society!', and here's what the flat-Earthers had to say

The SpaceX CEO was talking about the Martian equivalent of the Flat Earth Society, an organised community of flat-Earthers. As the group of so-called flat-Earthers – people who believe that our planet might actually be flat – continues to grow big, Space X boss Elon Musk started wondering if these people also believe that other planets are flat too. After 122

October 31, 2017 6:17 PM Mystery of the 'monster' planet half the size of the sun astronomers say should not exist

A 'monster' planet, which should in theory not exist, has been discovered orbiting a faint dwarf star far, far away, surprised astronomers have revealed. The existence of the gassy giant challenges long-standing theories that such a big planet - about the size of Jupiter - cannot be formed around a star so small. Artist's impression of the planet NGTS- 92

The American space agency’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) satellite captures ultraviolet images of the Sun, but its fixation on our star was briefly interrupted by the Moon passing in front of its lens. The lunar transit seen in the gif Nasa shared seems fleeting, but actually lasted about 45 minutes – between 8:41 and 9:25pm BST on Thursday 228
