Every 6,800 years you can catch a glimpse of Comet NEOWISE zooming through the inner solar system. So yes, now is the time to grab your binoculars or a small telescope and get ready to brag to your fellow stargazing friends that you saw IT.
Tonight is the night that a mountain-sized space rock will barely miss the earth. Barely miss in a space sense that is.The asteroid 2004 BL86, as it is known to NASA, will become the largest space rock of its kind to zoom safely by the Earth until 2027.
This is an awesome story! The new NASA X-ray image took a photo of an object in space that looks like the "Hand of God"! The photo is really a star that exploded and gave off an huge cloud of material.
