I haven’t seen a discovery like this since the Met Office were rolling out excuses for cold winters (oh look it’s the Jetstream and the Atlantic) 😝
In an online publication, this astronomer reports the detection of a very bright object in the night sky that wasn’t there before. Turns out, he’s thousands of years late for this discovery, says LiveScience.
Astronomer Peter Dunsby just made a groundbreaking discovery, after noticing a very bright “star” pop up in his field of view at an observatory at the University of Cape Town that was not present two weeks prior.
Too bad Dunsby was perhaps thousands of years late … the bright object was the planet Mars.
