NASA has determined the exact point where its huge UARS climate satellite fell to Earth. It's in the Pacific Ocean.
NASA is tracking the bus-sized Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite (UARS) and expect it to fall to Earth Friday afternoon. Precisely where the UARS satellite will land is still uncertain - but not in North America, says NASA.
It is still too early to tell exactly where the dead satellite will fall. Scientists will likely have a much better idea of where the debris will land about two hours before the impact, NASA officials said.
Brown dwarf: Over a period of several hours, the star exhibited the largest brightness variations ever seen on a cool brown dwarf.
Super-Earth: The newfound haul of alien planets includes 16 super-Earths, which are potentially rocky worlds that are more massive than our planet. One in particular has captured astronomers' attention because it orbits at the edge of its star's habitable zone, suggesting conditions could be ripe to support life.
Harvest moon: This month's full moon appears low in the southeastern sky, traditionally offering extra light so that farmers could gather their crops later into the evening.
Burning Man from 373 miles above: A European Space satellite took photos of the 2011 Burning Man festival in the Nevada desert.
Hurricane Irene, which battered the East Coast this past weekend was actually larger, but less intense than, hurricane Katrina.
Diamond planet: A super-high pressure of the new planet, which orbits a rapidly pulsing neutron star, has likely caused the carbon within it to crystallize into an actual diamond, a new study suggests.
Hurricane Irene was captured on video and in photos from the International Space Station by US astronaut Ron Garan.
