The telescope consists of a single dish, which has a diameter of around 1,640 feet.
One planet, known as Proxima b, has already been detected around the star.
Betelgeuse a nearby red supergiant star which is up to 20 times more massive than our sun.
Everything you need to know about the celestial event.
According to CNEOS data, there are 14 asteroids predicted to pass Earth this week. The largest of which is wider than the Empire State Building is tall.
The first New Moon of the year is called the Wolf Moon, named after hungry wolves crying out for food during winter. This year, it is also an eclipse.
The Quandrantids arrived in late December and continue until mid-January. They are expected to peak on 3-4 January. Here's what you need to know.
Based on its brightness, the asteroid is estimated to measure between 919 and 2,034 feet in diameter.
U.K. Astronomer Royal Martin Rees proposes that "post-humans" could one day transition into becoming "fully inorganic intelligences"
These planets are roughly the size of Jupiter, however, they are around a hundred times lighter.
The results could have significant implications for space weather prediction, particle physics experiments on Earth and our understanding of the sun's atmosphere.
The space rock will sail safely past the Earth at around 26,000 miles per hour—roughly 30 times faster than the speed of sound.
Meteor showers are celestial events during which numerous meteors appear in the night sky, originating from what seems like a single location.
The full moon in December has traditionally been referred to as the "Full Cold Moon" or the "Long Nights Moon."
Intriguingly, the Neptune-like planet is is about four times bigger than the star itself.
"Imagine condensing two-thirds of the Milky Way—which has a stellar mass equivalent to 60 billion suns—into a black hole and you have what we measured," said researcher Roberto Saglia.
"It's humbling to realize how small Earth is next to this visitor from another solar system," said Pieter van Dokkum from Yale University.
A large fireball was spotted crashing from the sky in Salem and police have yet to determine its exact location and origin.
The alpha Monocerotids are active every year, and this year produced a few visible meteors around November 22.
Most years the Alpha Monocerotids produce a modest display with just a handful of meteors.
Currently, we know of about roughly 25,000 near-Earth objects larger than 460 feet in diameter.
Two of Neptune's inner moons are locked together in a type of orbit that has not been seen before. This allows them to cross paths without coming into contact, researchers say.
Meteors, commonly known as "shooting stars," are the streaks of light we see when small pieces of debris from asteroids or comets enter the Earth's atmosphere and burn up at extremely high speeds.
The latest findings could have important implications for our understanding of how massive stars form.
This celestial event only takes place around 13 times a century.
The explosion occurred on the surface of a pulsar around 11,000 light-years away.
Mercury transits take place only around 13 times a century.
Each year, the Taurids peak between the final week of October and first week of November.
Due to its size, the object will appear quite bright in the sky as it flies past Earth at speeds of around 25,000 miles per hour.
The galaxy, spotted with ALMA, had been obscured by a huge cloud of dust, making it invisible to other telescopes.
