Parker Solar Probe launched in 2018 to explore the mysteries of the Sun by traveling closer to it than any spacecraft before. Three years after launch and decades after first conception, Parker has finally arrived.
For the first time in history, a spacecraft has touched the Sun. NASA’s Parker Solar Probe has now flown through the Sun’s upper atmosphere – the corona – and sampled particles and magnetic fields there.
As Parker Solar Probe passed through the Sun’s corona, the spacecraft flew by structures called coronal streamers. These structures can be seen as bright features moving upward and downward in the first video compiled from the spacecraft’s WISPR (Wide-field Imager for Parker Solar Probe) instrument.
Such a view is only possible because the spacecraft flew above and below the streamers inside the corona. Until now, streamers have only been seen from afar. They are visible from Earth during total solar eclipses.

I spy with my barreleye, a new Fresh from the Deep! During a dive with our education and outreach partner, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, the team came across a rare treat: a barreleye fish (Macropinna microstoma). MBARI’s remotely operated vehicles Ventana and Doc Ricketts have logged more than 5,600 successful dives and recorded more than 27,600 hours of video—yet we’ve only encountered this fish nine times! The barreleye lives in the ocean’s twilight zone, at depths of 600 to 800 meters (2,000 to 2,600 feet). Its eyes look upwards to spot its favorite prey—usually small crustaceans trapped in the tentacles of siphonophores—from the shadows they cast in the faint shimmer of sunlight from above. But how does this fish eat when its eyes point upward and its mouth points forward? MBARI researchers learned the barreleye can rotate its glowing green eyes beneath that dome (head) of transparent tissue. Aquarist Tommy Knowles and his team were aboard MBARI’s R/V Rachel Carson with our ROV
During the Apollo missions, many photos were taken by the crews including rare images of strange bright and glowing objects above, on or near the moon. The video below shows some rare images of these bright objects captured during the Apollo 11, 12, 13, 14 and 16 missions. Apollo 13 was to be the third mission to land on the Moon. An explosion in one of the oxygen tanks crippled the spacecraft during flight and the crew were forced to orbit the Moon and return to the Earth without landing. During the orbit of the moon, the crew captured strange objects above and on the moon. Now, there seems to be a ”Moon Industry” to have held for at least the past fifty years in the crater Plato as moving and flashing lights have been observed at the bottom of the crater. For over hundred years the British Royal Astronomical Society has reported 1600 similar sightings of bright lights in the crater Aristarchus, lights at the eastern foot of the lunar Alps, in Mare Crisium a series of spots and st
A 3D render created of what looks like an artificial anomaly discovered in Protonilus Mensae on Mars. The footage shows an anomaly what appears to a disc shape with a dome on top and two smaller semi-circular parts on either side. The anomaly is lying on it’s side on a rectangular area that seems cleared out.
Looking at the famous Da Vinci, “The Last Supper” picture, mirroring and inverting the picture in the correct way, inverting it right down the middle you get a hidden image that is unbelievable. What is revealed is absolutely Jaw Dropping! The question is, what did Da Vinci Know that he is trying to reveal?
