04-11-2000: Scientists revise asteroid warning
Less than a day after sounding the alert about asteroid 2000SG344, a revised analysis of the space rock's orbit shows it will in fact miss the Earth by about five million kilometres (three million miles).

07-08-2000: Ten More Planets Discovered - Total Now Over 50
The discovery, if confirmed, will mark a turning point in our exploration of the Red Planet, with future missions to Mars being directed to the locations of seepage.

21-06-2000: Water On Mars - Door For Life On Red Planet Now Officially Open
The discovery, if confirmed, will mark a turning point in our exploration of the Red Planet, with future missions to Mars being directed to the locations of seepage.

08-05-2000: Eight New Possible Planets Detected
European astronomers on Monday reported detecting signs that eight planets, some of them possibly larger than Jupiter, may be orbiting stars outside our own solar system.

23-02-2000: A Coronal Hole Targets Earth
The end of February could mark another good weekend for aurora watchers, thanks to a large coronal hole currently straddling the visible disk of the sun.

19-02-2000: Hunting for Higher Dimensions
Experimenters scurry to test new theories suggesting that extra dimensions are detectable. The results could imply the existence of one or two extra spatial dimensions, the story stated, "a surprise to everyone."

07-02-2000: Small Sunspot, Big Flare - Things are Hotting Up
This weekend a major solar flare erupted on the northeast limb of the Sun at 1928 UT on February 5. According to data from the NOAA Space Environment Center, it was one of the largest and brightest optical flares of the current solar cycle.

03-01-2000: Scientists make strides in predicting solar storms
As the sun reaches the peak of its 11-year cycle of activity this year, scientists say they are closer to understanding the process and are more able to accurately predict the severity of solar storms.

15-12-1999: Rare silence of solar wind opens window into sun
The constant stream of particles from the sun known as the solar wind all but stopped blowing earlier this year, offering a rare opportunity to study the interaction between Earth and its nearest star.

13-12-1999: The Day the Solar Wind Disappeared
This event of our solar wind related to the Sun dropping to almost zero occurred in May 99, (eight months ago). Why did they wait until now to disclose this story?

29-11-1999: 5 New Planets discovered which could Support Life
Astronomers scanning distant stars have detected six more massive planets, five of which orbit their suns at just the right distance to support liquid water and -- theoretically -- life, scientists announced on Monday.

14-11-1999: It's Real!
Little known HD 209458, a Sun-like star 150 light-years away, had been suspected of harboring planets from a slight wobble found in its motion. Henry et al. now find that this wobble exactly corresponds to a planet crossing the face of the star, creating the slight dimming effect of a partial eclipse.

12-11-1999: Mercury to put in a rare appearance
Solar maximum is just around the corner, which means that the Sun is peppered with sunspots. Just today there were 5 groups and at least 50 individual spots visible on the surface of our star. On Monday, November 15, observers in the Pacific hemisphere can catch a glimpse of a different kind of sunspot ...

09-11-1999: Most distant solar system object detected
Astronomers have observed an object orbiting the Sun that is more distant than anything yet discovered. It has been designated 1999 DG8. It is an example of what researchers call a Scattered Kuiper Belt Object (SKBO).

05-11-1999: Planet orbiting two suns?
Astronomers searching the universe for its elusive dark matter may have found the first evidence of a planet orbiting two stars. The new planet was uncovered while scientists were analyzing two-year-old data of a two-star system 20,000 light years away eclipsing an even more distant star.

01-11-1999: Comet Orbits Hint At New Planet
An undiscovered planet as massive as Jupiter could be orbiting in the distant reaches of the solar system, a British astronomer reported Thursday. Dr. John Murray, of the Open University, has not seen the large mysterious object but believes it exists because of peculiarities in the orbits of distant comets

19-10-1999: Three Rapid Solar Explosions Dazzle
Solar physicists did a double take, then a triple take, last week as the sun produced a rapid-fire series of coronal mass ejections. The space-based Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) captured three dramatic coronal mass ejections (CMEs) in a 14-hour period starting Oct. 12.

14-10-1999: And then there were 10
A tenth planet even bigger than Jupiter has been orbiting the Sun unnoticed, claim two astronomers. They believe that the Sun captured the giant planet as it wandered through space.

14-10-1999: NASA scientists place the solar maximum in mid-2000
Beginning in late September, a continuing series of minor to moderate geomagnetic storms have triggered aurorae along the northern tier of U.S states and may have affected some public power systems operating at high northern latitudes.

12-08-1999: Eclipse provides unique solar image
For the millions who saw it, August's total solar eclipse was an unforgettable experience that cannot be adequately captured in words or on film. Only during a total eclipse can the Sun's faint outer atmosphere called the corona be seen. During totality, prominences and streamers can be seen in this thin gas.

09-04-1999: Link Established Between Solar Cycle And Earth Climate
Researchers have found that the variations in the energy given off from the sun effect the Earth's wind patterns and thus the climate of the planet.
