A galaxy is a massive, gravitationally bound system that consists of stars, stellar objects (such as brown dwarfs and neutron stars), an interstellar medium of gas and dust, black holes, and an unknown component of dark matter. Examples of galaxies range from dwarfs with as few as ten million stars to giants with a hundred trillion stars or more, each orbiting through their galaxy.
On January 31, we will witness a very rare phenomenon: “A Super Blue Moon”. The event will combine 3 phenomena at the same time: a blue moon, a super moon, and a total lunar eclipse. It will appear for the first time in 150 years and we will see a massive Super moon which will be 14% bigger and 30% brighter than usual. Super moon happens when the moon is at its closest approach to Earth, that’s why the moon’s orbit is oval shaped and not a circle.
Meteor shower runs annually starting from January 3, 4 – Quadrantids Meteor Shower. April 22, 23 – Lyrids Meteor Shower. May 5, 6 – Eta Aquarids Meteor Shower.

Scientists from Peking University in China and from the University of Arizona announced their findings the brightest quasar in the early universe, powered by the most massive black hole yet known at that time. The discovery of this quasar, named SDSS J0100+2802, marks an important step in understanding how quasars have evolved from the earliest epoch 900 million years after the Big Bang, thought to have happened 13.7 billion years ago. The quasar, with its central black hole mass of 12 billion solar masses and the luminosity of 420 trillion suns, is at a distance of 12.8 billion light-years from Earth.
Huawei revealed its first Android Wear device called the Huawei Watch. As for the size, the watch is a compact 42mm, which is apparently friendlier to those with smaller wrists. It also has a standard 18mm lug width and you have the choice of either metal or leather straps.

It will also offer 3GB RAM and storage options of 32, 64, or 128GB and come with Android 5.0 Lollipop OS.
Bright Lights on Dwarf Planet Ceres, pictured by NASA’s Dawn space probe. Ceres is the largest object in the asteroid belt, which lies between Mars and Jupiter. The diameter of dwarf planet Ceres is about 950 kilometers. Images taken nearly 46,000 kilometres from Ceres show that a bright spot on the planet, which scientists discovered previously, appears next to another slightly darker spot, NASA said in a news release. Scientists expect to receive better views of the mystery lights as the spacecraft closes in and spirals nearer the dwarf planet Ceres on March 6.
A moon is a natural satellite rotating around a planet. Many people think that the answer to ‘what is the largest moon in the Solar System’ is our Moon. It is not. Our Moon is the fifth largest Moon in the solar system. Let’s explore the moons of the solar system. The below is the top 10 largest moons in the solar system.
