]Close call: star whizzed past solar system at distance of a light year

This is something I hadn't really understood about stars before: how fast they move. Only 70 000 years a star - in fact a twin star, if you count brown dwarfs as stars - passed what is generally defined as our solar system. Coming as close as 0.8 light years, it was within the Oort Cloud, the outer part of solar system. Now that same star is 20 light years away from us.
Currently closest star, Alpha Centauri is 4.3 LY away.

So out there are all these star system, going here and there and it wouldn't take millions of years for couple to hit each other... (takes thousands of years, though)

Currently biggest astronomical mystery: what is the bright spot on Ceres?

]Bright lights on dwarf planet perplex NASA as probe nears


Probably just ice, but that still leaves questions. Ice volcano? But being in middle of large crater suggests other options too.

Sorry K, what I know about astronomy is dangerous ... I can barely make out the Southern Cross unless someone points it out to me. Duh!

Re: Astronomy News


In 10 days New Horizons flies by Pluto and we're getting better and better pictures.
So far we've seen that the little brown ex-planet has mysterious dark spots and the big moon Charon a darker area at north pole. Also it's been confirmed Pluto has no more than the known five moons (unless very small and distant).
