A rare 'black moon' will rise this Friday night, turning the sky dark as the Western Hemisphere experiences its second new moon of the month.
Those on the other side of the world will have to wait until next month for the same event to occur, but it’ll be worth it - their eerie black moon is set to coincide with Halloween.
If you’re having trouble keeping up with all the different types of 'moons' we've got now - with blood moons, blue moons, and supermoons clogging up your sky-watching calendar - the black moon is a fairly new addition, and experts are still trying to nail down its definition.

Science headlines today show signs that elements of the electric universe paradigm are becoming increasingly mainstream. With leaps in technology and data have come the definitive refutation of the notion of an electrically sterile universe. However, the basic premise of a cosmos dominated by the gravitational force remains the backbone of standard cosmology. In this episode, Bishop Nicholas Sykes describes and forecasts the perhaps inevitable paradigm shift towards electric universe concepts.
Final images from Rosetta spacecraft before crash landing on comet The Cosmos News
Published on Sep 30, 2016
The Rosetta spacecraft ended its historic mission on Friday, crashing on the surface of the dusty, icy comet it has spent 12 years chasing in a hunt that has provided insight into the early days of the solar system and captured the public's imagination.
The spacecraft has stalked comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko across more than 6 billion km of space, collecting a treasure trove of information on comets that will keep scientists busy for the next decade.

The subject of this video series by Dave Talbott is the ancient experience of towering celestial forms that are no longer present. From a single snapshot of the configuration, we can work backwards to the first appearance of these bodies out of an undifferentiated cloud or sea of dusty plasma. We can then follow the configuration’s evolution through phases that range from quasi-stability to earth shaking catastrophe.
Important Note: As this series continues, it will become increasingly important to start with the Preface and work forward sequentially. These were not intended to be stand-alone videos.

Modern astronomy and space exploration has blessed us with a plethora of wonderful images. Whether they were images of distant planets, stars and galaxies taken by Earth-based telescopes, or close-ups of planets or moons in our own Solar System by spacecraft, there has been no shortage of inspiring pictures. But what would it look like to behold planet Earth from another celestial body?

Alexander Chizevsky was likely the first to catalog a cyclical relationship between solar activity and cultural "upsets" or advancements. Outbursts of both creative or destructive excitement, depending on the socio-cultural conditions which had been building, appeared to facilitate artistic revolutions and bloody revolutions from tyranny alike.
This episode introduces the community to his work, and some of the many effects found by other scientists, which ought to open one's mind to exploring such a hypothesis. Perhaps channels like Suspicious0bservers will one day help forecast health states of physiology and psychology, helping us to hold better empathy for each other, knowing: "It's almost that time of the solar cycle!"
Juno Spacecraft captures Spooky Sounds Coming From Jupiter? The Cosmos News
Published on Oct 15, 2016
The noises coming from Jupiter sound like they’re straight out of a Halloween movie.
When NASA’s Juno spacecraft made its first full orbit around Jupiter on August 27, an instrument on board called Waves recorded the gas giant’s auroras. The emissions of the light show—which is similar to the northern and southern lights on Earth but on a vastly larger scale—were discovered in the 1950s but never able to be analyzed up close until now.
Stealthy Solar Storm & Dark Holes on the Sun: Solar Storm Forecast 10-16-2016 TamithaSkov

The Sun's activity picked up this week with a stealthy solar storm that caused aurora all around the world. Some fast wind that follows could continue low-level storming through the weekend. Catch up on aurora pics from this storm & see what else the Sun has in store!
None of this would be possible without the hard work and dedication of those who have provided all of this data for public use.

Eta Carinae:Explosive Star System's Turbulance Revealed in Best View Yet The Cosmos News
Published on Oct 20, 2016
One of astronomy's most famous stellar pairs sports strange structures in the windy zone between the two stars, according to new observations from the European Southern Observatory's Very Large Telescope Interferometer (VLTI).
Eta Carinae is a star system located about 7,500 light-years from Earth in the constellation Carina. The new images, released today (Oct. 19), provide unprecedented detail of the windy area between the two stars, which could help scientists better understand how massive star evolution works.
Eta Carinae is known for a great eruption that astronomers observed in the 1830s. Much later, scientists determined the larger star had created the eruption by blowing out lots of dust and gas quickly. The explosion is seen in two lobes around the star system, known as the Homunculus Nebula."
ESO researchers created this stunning view video of Eta Carinae to zoom into the deepest-ever view of the star system. We weaved telescope imagery and a simulation from ESO and NASA

NASA’s New Horizons mission to the dwarf planet Pluto has provided scientists on Earth with countless puzzles and mysteries. From impossible “sand dunes,” which were never expected on the tiny planet’s frozen surface, to equally unexpected giant mountains, to a surprising absence of so-called impact craters, and selective regional cratering, with highly circular craters not to be expected on any Kuiper Belt object. And now, a team working with the Chandra X-ray Observatory has reported perhaps the greatest surprise about Pluto to date -- the discovery of the emission of X-rays from Pluto. The team is also reporting that Pluto has a giant, comet-like tail, which mission scientists believe may be as much as 1000-times the radius of Pluto. In this episode, physicist Eugene Bagashov begins the first in a four-part series offering his analysis of the most compelling new scientific data from the Plutonian system.

Europe's ExoMars lander apparently crashed on the Red Planet, and an orbiting NASA spacecraft has spotted its grave, European Space Agency (ESA) officials said.
The lander, named Schiaparelli, stopped communicating with mission control about 1 minute before its planned touchdown on Mars Wednesday morning (Oct. 19). Newly released photos of the landing site by NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) seem to confirm what ExoMars team members had suspected — that Schiaparelli died a violent death.
The photos show a bright feature consistent with the lander's 39-foot-wide (12 meters) parachute, as well as a 50-by-130-foot (15 by 40 m) dark patch likely created by the lander's impact, ESA officials said.

Today, physicist Eugene Bagashov explores the question of Pluto’s composition and origins, and contrasts the predictions of the standard theory versus those of the Electric Universe.In the previous episode, He began his four-part presentation on the latest discoveries from NASA’s New Horizons mission to the dwarf planet Pluto. The mission is one of many recent opportunities to test the predictions of the standard story of our solar system’s history and origins.
In this story, called the nebular hypothesis, the solar system formed through gravitational collapse in a cloud of gas and dust. Proponents of this theory propose that water-ice was the primary building block for Pluto and its moons. But countless discoveries in recent years have proved highly problematic for the standard story of our solar system’s formation and history.
