Betelgeuse a nearby red supergiant star which is up to 20 times more massive than our sun.
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 asteroid will travel past our planet at a staggering velocity of around 27,500 miles per hour.
"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.
This celestial event only takes place around 13 times a century.
The space rock will come within around 2.7 million miles of our planet.
The space rock could measure up to 3,248 feet in diameter.
Studying the the pressure at the edge of the solar system can help us to better understand the influence of the sun on interstellar space.
The shock was produced by streams of charged particles that are emitted from the sun, known as the solar wind.
"This has been one of the rare opportunities when the signs of aging could be directly observed in a star over human timescales," Meridith Joyce said.
On this day, half a century ago, astronauts Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins took off aboard a Saturn V rocket from Launch Pad 39A at the Kennedy Space Center, Cape Canaveral, Florida, headed for the moon.
Full moons are an astronomical phenomenon which occur around once a month, when the Earth is positioned between the sun and the moon.
Total solar eclipses occur when the Moon passes directly between the Sun and the Earth, casting a shadow over certain parts of the planet.
The Teegarden star—a red dwarf with a mass less than a tenth that of the sun—is located just 12.5 light-years away in the constellation Aries.
The full moon on Sunday will also coincide with Jupiter appearing particularly bright and large in the night sky.
It was once thought that only young and active stars produced these explosive events, but according to a new study, our 4.6-billion-year-old sun also has the capacity.
Scientists have long been unable to explain the mystery of why the Sun's outer atmosphere is hotter than its surface.
The distant object, about 4 billion miles from the sun, lies in the Kuiper Belt.
Parker has surpassed the previous close approach record set in April 1976 by the German-American spacecraft Helios 2.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has issued a geomagnetic storm watch for September 11.
Trump made the "fake news" claim in a joint press conference with the U.K. prime minister.
The candid moment was caught on camera.
The longest lunar eclipse to occur in the 21st century will clock in at 103 minutes.
The Galactic Archaeology survey was launched in a bid to provide new insights into the formation and evolution of the Milky Way.
