Gigantic 'Blinking' Star Presents a Cosmic Mystery

For a period of several months, a huge star located more than 25,000 light-years from Earth got increasingly dimmer before eventually returning to its usual brightness. An obstruction of some kind likely caused this strange effect, but astronomers aren’t exactly sure what it is.Read more...

If you’re not a fan of fireworks (or the ones in your area have been cancelled), there’s something going on in the night sky on the 4th of July: a penumbral lunar eclipse.

How to see Buck Moon eclipse

Instead of getting yourself into an ill-advised crowd to see this year’s fireworks, stay at home and look at the moon — the spectacle will be just as good. This month’s full moon is happening on July 4, and is known as the “Buck Moon.” The name is derived from the natural phenomenon that typically occurs in July, wherein a male deer grows its new antlers. Deer shed their antlers after mating season, and then grow new ones when warmer weather comes. But there’s more to this full moon than it...

Luxury solar eclipse cruises

The next couple of Decembers offer some pretty fantastic travel-bucket-list two-for-ones. Though you won’t find any BOGOs here, what you will find is the rare opportunity to see both a total solar eclipse and visit Antarctica in the same stellar vacation. As December 14, 2020, and December 4, 2021, both bring the lines of totality to the oceans near the white continent, a number of cruise lines are scheduling cruises to sail right into daytime darkness, then on into Antarctica. Though those ...

December 26, 2019 solar eclipse

If you happened to be traveling in the Middle East and Asia yesterday, you might have been fortunate enough to glimpse a beautiful celestial spectacle. Visible in Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Sri Lanka, and Indonesia, an annular solar eclipse graced the sky, with the sun forming a ring of fire around the moon. Annular solar eclipses occur when the moon covers the sun’s center, but leaves the outer edges exposed, which then appear to form a bright ring. During total solar eclipses, the moon covers...

The eclipse that proved Einstein’s theories

“Lights all askew in the heavens,” read the New York Times front page, “Men [sic] of science more or less agog.” The Times of London was more decorous: “Revolution in science. Newtonian ideas overthrown.”The confirmation of Albert Einstein’s new general theory of relativity on the 29th of May 1919 made headlines around the world. Arthur Stanley Eddington‘s measurement of the gravitational deflection of starlight by the Sun was a triumph of experimental and theoretical physics. Scientists are goo...

Where to see the next 10 eclipses

Unless you’re from the Arctic Circle, it’s not often you get to stare up at a dark-as-night sky in the middle of the day. This is what makes total solar eclipses so special — and worth planning an astronomy-themed trip to see in person. A total solar eclipse occurs when the moon travels between Earth and the sun, fully blocking out the sunlight for a short span of time. In 2017, the US saw its first total solar eclipse in almost 40 years, wowing spectators from Tennessee to Oregon. If you mis...

Eclipse by Rosetti guitar strings review

We recently got our hands on some of Rosetti’s Eclipse strings to see how these slinky strings measure up. Spoiler alert: They’re pretty good. The nice people at Rosetti were kind enough to send us a set of their Eclipse strings for electric and acoustic guitars. We tested them out to see how they feel and what they sound like. I tried their 9-42 thickness, nickel roundwound electric guitar strings. The strings are incredibly slick to the touch with a slinkiness that makes playing on th...

Our Earth, Moon and Sun line up on Sunday night for the only total lunar eclipse of of the year. Catch it if you can.

Total lunar eclipse coming

The name of the unique celestial phenomenon might sound a bit dramatic, but then again, so is the phenomenon itself. On January 21, at around 12:12 AM EST, a total lunar eclipse called “super blood wolf moon” will be visible in the night sky. The name describes a total lunar eclipse that makes the moon appear larger and red to people on Earth. Total lunar eclipses only happen when the sun, Earth, and moon reach perfect alignment, causing the Earth’s shadow to hide the moon from view. By contr...
