Do you recognize this constellation? Setting past the Central Bohemian Highlands in the Czech Republic is Orion, one of the most identifiable star groupings on the sky and an icon familiar to humanity for over 30,000 years. Orion has looked pretty much the same during this time and should continue to look the same for many thousands of years into the future. Prominent Orion is high in the sky at sunset this time of year, a recurring sign of (modern) winter in Earth's northern hemisphere and summer in the south. The featured picture is a composite of over thirty images taken from the same location and during the same night last month. Below and slightly to the left of Orion's three-star belt is the Orion Nebula, while four of the bright stars surrounding the belt are, clockwise, Sirius (far left, blue), Betelgeuse (top, orange, unusually faint), Aldebaran (far right), and Rigel (below). As future weeks progress, Orion will set increasingly earlier.

One of the more interesting astronomy stories that came out at the tail end of 2019 was the bizarre behavior of the nearby star known as Betelgeuse. It sits somewhere between 520 and 650 light-years from Earth, and that's extremely close in the grand scheme of things, making its behavior of particul...

Betelgeuse just keeps on getting weirder. After an unprecedented dimming, followed by the detection of a gravitational wave, the star seems to have changed shape.

Stop using the worst-case scenario for climate warming as the most likely outcome — more-realistic baselines make for better policy.

Tabloids are useful for measuring hot cars, hot girls, hot guys and hot stocks for real facts, look to the hard science published in objective accredited journals who don not receive government or foundation funding to push a political agenda. ...

I dont see any sense anymore in discussing with people who willingly decide to ignore sheer facts and post stuff like "Greta- a demon of last century?"

BUT- and maybe this is the by far biggest BUT you will see in all the discussion about climate. This post is not positive at all.
Its sheer devastating. It is for those who are really into science - and a bit for the dumbos still ignoring it.
