Registros antiguos de lunas oscuras y lunas de sangre ayudan a los científicos a vislumbrar erupciones pasadas y sus efectos en el clima global.
Amateur radio operators who study space physics and the upper atmosphere probed the ionosphere’s response to the 2023 annular solar eclipse using shortwave transmissions.
Ancient accounts of dark and blood-red moons help scientists peek at past eruptions and their effect on global climate.
New tools are helping make solar eclipse experiences and research accessible to people who are blind or low vision, communities often excluded from historically visually based sciences like astronomy.
The path of a solar eclipse through Earth’s ionosphere, which can be quite different than it is at ground level, appears to explain patterns of ionized particle depletions.
Using upcoming ground- and space-based telescopes, scientists hope to make similar observations of the skies of distant, Earth-like exoplanets.
Instead of throwing them in the trash, millions donated their slightly used eclipse glasses so that others around the world could share the experience.
Telescopes around the world detected an impact event on the lunar surface just before totality on Monday. Amateur and professional astronomers are starting to coordinate data.
Measurements taken by an automated national meteorological monitoring network during the 2017 total solar eclipse illuminate how the land and atmosphere respond to a sudden loss of sunlight.
Airborne telescopes gave scientists a sky-high view of the 2017 Great American Eclipse as they took measurements that are difficult to obtain from the ground.
