A new "hole" in the Sun's atmosphere has sparked stunning displays of the northern lights here on Earth

As the coronal hole rotated into view of the Solar Dynamics Observatory, the spacecraft captured a video of what it looked like Ok, let's say it straight away: A "hole" in the Sun's corona is completely natural.

New analysis: global sea ice suffered major losses in 2016

The extent of sea ice globally took major hits during 2016, according to an analysis released yesterday by the National Snow and Ice Data Center.

Here's what Earth and the Moon look like to a telescope on a Mars orbiter that's 127 million miles from home

Just two days ago, I posted a spectacular picture from the most powerful telescope orbiting Mars showing a fresh blast zone and crater gouged into the surface of Mars by an impacting space rock.

The first of several climate verdicts is in: 2016 was the warmest year on record — as widely expected

On the heels of a study confirming that there had been no slowdown in global warming, there is now this news: 2016 was indeed the warmest year on record.

A chunk of interplanetary debris recently slammed into Mars and left this fresh crater and spray of ejecta

Sea ice globally is at a shocking low extent, thanks to record declines in both the Arctic and Antarctic

Dramatic losses in both the Arctic and Antarctic drove sea ice extent to record lows in both regions during November, the National Snow and Ice Data Center has announced.

Electric-blue ice clouds seeded by meteor dust have been spied over Antarctica by a NASA spacecraft

Not to worry, this is normal. But climate change may be playing a role. As summer gets under way in the Southern Hemisphere, electric blue clouds seeded by meteor dust begin to glow high in the sky over Antarctica's vast icy reaches.
