Contrary to earlier visualisations, the sun's heliosphere is dominated by two giant jets of material shooting backwards over the north and south poles of the sun.
A total solar eclipse will occur on March 20, but it will not be visible in India.
Giving fresh insight into the role of the Sun in climate change, a new study shows its impact is not constant over time but has greater significance when the Earth is cooler.
A black hole, 12 billion times as massive as the Sun that grew to gargantuan size in the universe's first billion years, is by far the largest yet spotted from such an early date, researchers said.
Scientists have reported progress in photovoltaic research as they have improved a component that will enable solar cells to use more energy of the sun and thus create a higher current.
Scientists say they have discovered a black hole so big that it challenges the theory about how they grow.
NASA's Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) along with the European Space Agency (ESA) have captured an unusual comet that skimmed past the Sun Feb 18-21.
A new study of the solar system suggests that astrophysical jets are driven by the sun.
A team of scientists has discovered the origin of the magnetic field covering the Sun.
A new study has revealed that our sun will not explode as a powerful supernova when it eventually runs out of fuel, but there will be fireworks.
German researchers have developed a new technique that will help astronomers hunt for Earth-like planets around distant stars with ease.
A team of astronomers has identified the closest known flyby of a star to our solar system.
Scientists have discovered that stars, which are similar to the sum, explode too when they die.

NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) on Wednesday, February 11, celebrated its fifth anniversary in space.
NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) has captured a giant dark line snaked across the lower half of the Sun - longer than 67 Earths lined up in a row.
A review of solar activity in the past 400 years has shown that the level of sun activity was not very different in the 18th century as it is now, suggesting that blaming the sun for global warming is simply barking up the wrong tree.
In a new observation, astronomers have identified an image of a white dwarf expelling out its outer layers.
ESA`s Rosetta mission has enabled scientists to watch the life cycle of a comet, 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, as it sheds the dusty coat accumulated over the past 4 years.
NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory has released a mind-boggling 100 millionth photo of the Sun for public viewing.
