Events in space are among the most intriguing and awesome of all phenomena. Space phenomena can be defined as naturally occurring events that are caused by the vacuum of space, contained within space or directly result from an event within space.
A broad and diverse group of rocks in space that were little studied by astronomers until the mid-twentieth century. A major ‘belt’ of asteroids exists between Mars and Jupiter, and divides the solar system into the terrestrial group of planets and the gasseous giants.
2. Black Hole
A large, massive star that has run out of fuel and collapsed in on itself. The remnant core or sphere is so densely packed that light and other objects cannot escape its gravitational pull.
Scientists believe that small (and possibly exotic) particles account for motions of stars and galaxies that cannot otherwise be explained. Dark matter, to this point, has eluded detection and can not be seen with technologies that known particles and matter can.
Planets located in solar systems and orbiting stars other than our own. There have been a substantial number of exoplanets discovered in the past few years by astronomers, utilizing improved detection methods and telescopes.
Enormous structures in space that are home to millions upon millions of stars and solar systems. They come in different shapes and varieties, and are among the most beautiful astronmoical phenomena to be seen.
Billions if not trillions of planets exist in our universe, each one unique in its own way. The ancient Greeks called these objects “planetes”, or wanderers, because their paths across the night sky differed from those of other stars.
Modern observatories show that Saturn’s ring is on average just a few yards thick. Although in some places it bulges to nearly a quarter mile in thickness. And it’s really not just one ring, but a series of rings.
