We all know that stars twinkle (astronomers call it scintillation). But why does this happen? It’s all because of our wonderful and horrible atmosphere.
What you see here is an artist’s impression of the hottest most massive binary stars discovered to-date. These conjoined stars (called VFTS 352) are 160 000 light-years away in the Tarantula Nebula.

This is a type of cloud formation that goes by many names including a FallStreak Hole, Hole-Punch Cloud, Canal Cloud, etc.
This hole forms in certain cumulus clouds in the following two-step process:
