One of the Largest Asteroid Impact Craters in the World is in Idaho

If you follow NASA's JPL Asteroid Watch Twitter feed, you already know that asteroids whizz past our little blue planet on a pretty regular basis. Luckily a 6 mile wide monster--like the one that wiped out the dinosaurs--doesn't come along very often, but asteroids do hit Earth. All the time.

And scientists have discovered one of the largest craters in the United States is right here in Idaho.

Today is ‘World UFO Day’ – Do You Believe?

Aliens scare me. Not the black, bitey, acid-blooded ones from the 'Alien' films, but the ones reported to be 'real' aliens: small, gray, with big heads, and big, black, almond shaped eyes. You know, the aliens that abduct Travis Walton and Whitley Strieber... the ones that can come into your home in the middle of the night and there's absolutely nothing you can do to stop them.

Hot Twin Falls Sunshine: Let’s Cook Solar Hotdogs

Summer has arrived and brought with it an abundance of sunshine. My son Jack and I decided to put the sun to good use and make our own solar cooker to roast up some hotdogs. It was an easy and fun project, and only called for Jack to be patient long enough for the hotdog to cook, which is hard for a three year old.

Personal Space – How Big Is Your Bubble?

Everyone likes to have their own 'personal space' — that buffer area between us and another person that we need to feel comfortable — but some are more extreme than others. How big is your bubble?

The Venus Transit Will Be The Most Spectacular Thing You Probably Won’t See Today

Today (June 5th) marks a once-in-a-lifetime astronomical event as the planet Venus transits across the face of the sun in perfect alignment for viewing on Earth. It hasn't been seen here since 1882, and won't occur again until 2117.

It's one of the rarest predictable astronomical events, and will likely be obscured as storms move through the area.

Watch The Solar Eclipse in Twin Falls With A Pinhole Viewer

Brad already talked about the dangers of staring directly at the sun, so how are you supposed to watch the partial solar eclipse today? We're all going back to the 2nd grade on this one and making a Pinhole Viewer.

The idea is simple: the light from the sun is filtered through a pinhole in a piece of paper allowing you to safely view the moon's transition across the face of the sun.

Information Overload – Do You Miss The Good Old Days?

I live for technology. No matter where I am or what I'm doing I always have my iPhone, a laptop, and an always-on internet connection. From the moment I wake up to the last minute before I go to sleep at night, I'm connected in some way to the internet.

I think, more often than not, you are too, and it's all starting to become too much.
