Dust cloud from two colliding ice planets dims light of parent star
For the first time, an international group of astronomers have seen the heat glow of two giant ice planets colliding, and the resultant dust cloud move in front of the parent star several years later. The star ASASSN-21qj - named after the network of telescopes that first detected the fading of the star at visible wavelengths - was then studied intensively by a network of amateur and professional astronomers including those at The University of Warwick, who monitored the changes in the star's brightness over the next two years.

Second James Webb image of Ring Nebula hints at dying star’s companion
A beautiful new image of the Ring Nebula captured by the James Webb Space Telescope, which reveals new features in the outer regions of the ring, has been released by ESA, NASA and CSA and an international team co-led by a UCL astronomer. The image, from James Webb's MIRI (Mid-Infrared Instrument) ( on the right of the main image above ), complements an image issued earlier this month, showing the Ring Nebula at shorter wavelengths of infrared light, taken by James Webb's NIRCam (Near Infrared Camera) ( above left ).

Astronomers working to solve mysteries of universe after Euclid satellite launch
Mysteries of the dark universe which have bewildered astronomers for centuries could finally be solved by Southampton scientists after a satellite was fired into space. The 1billlion Euclid rocket was launched by SpaceX in July to reveal the origins of the cosmos. The satellite, which is fitted with telescopic space cameras, is on a six-year mission to shed light on dark energy and dark matter - which scientists say account for 95 per cent of the known universe.
