Galileo Arrives at Jupiter
Its six-year journey finally over, the Galileo spacecraft prepares to revolutionize our knowledge of the giant planet and its family of satellites.
It used to be a normal binary system, but SS Lacertae appears to have lost one of its members when another star collided with it.
Second Chance Planets
No one ever expected to find planets in the hostile environs of a pulsar. Now astronomers are trying to figure out how they got there.
The bright planets stay close to the Sun this month, providing several pretty twilight views as the crescent Moon passes nearby.
A Trip Through the Wasteland
A small scope can show you surprisingly pretty star clusters and galaxies in the unassuming constellations of Camelopardalis and Lynx.
