    An underage thief was captured after he rolled and then bailed out of an SUV that he'd just stolen in Paramus. A witness apparently saw the BMW X5 being stolen and chased the thief shortly after 3:30 p.m. Friday, responders said. The fleeing vehicle collided with his Accord and landed on its roof on Ann Court near the intersection of Paramus Road. The driver, believed to be 15 or 16, bailed out and tried to run but was quickly captured behind the nearby Parkview Residences senior citizens complex, responders said. The civilian who pursued the vehicle -- and apparently recorded video -- wasn't injured, witnesses said. He later gave a statement to police. All Points Towing righted and removed the SUV. Boyd A. Loving took the photos and contributed to this account.

    A woman in Florida captured a "fire rainbow" on camera and posted it on social media. The effect, also called iridescent clouds, comes about promptly after thunderstorms. Water droplets form at the top of cumulus clouds as they cool, and then those drops become prisms for the fire-shaped rainbow that forms in the clouds. Even when all other factors align, the sun still has to be exactly 58 degrees above the horizon in order to hit the prisms just right.

    A giant fireball exploding from the side of an apartment building in the hard-hit port of Mariupol was just one of the many disturbing signs of ongoing Russian attacks in Ukraine on Friday. The unceasing violence in cities throughout Ukraine prompted yet more residents to join the 2.5 million who are estimated to already have left the country. In the besieged town of Irpin, a suburb of the capital of Kyiv, two men held tight to the arms of an elderly woman fleeing her home Friday. Wearing a white headscarf with orange and yellow flowers and a flowered blue skirt that was visible under her brown winter coat, she edged forward slowly past an overturned car and destroyed bridge, wielding a cane in her right hand. Some Ukrainians have either decided to stay put or haven’t yet been able to leave. One such elderly woman took shelter in a basement of a home in Irpin that had no heat or running water. She sat on the edge of a bed bundled in a big winter coat and stared out...
    BEIJING (AP) — Six days of Olympics, gone in a blur. No surprise, of course, given the way these athletes move. Racing around the cross-country course in Zhangjiakou, floodlights keeping the track clear at dusk. Or blitzing down the luge track, a colorful rocket on white ice. Even in curling, speed is everything. Controlling the stone’s pace takes focus — blocking out all else — and it shows on the steady face of U.S. curler Christopher Plys. There’s plenty to be distracted by, too. The replica Great Wall along the slopestyle run is quite a sight. For human catapults like Japanese snowboarder Ruki Tobita, an aerial view is always preferred. Coming down the ramp at Big Air Shougang, Swedish freestyle skier Oliwer Magnusson isn’t thinking much about the shuttered steel mill around him. Moments before launching some 20 feet skyward, his goggled eyes are fixed straight ahead. Surely, these Games have been a blur for Kamila Valieva. In an Associated Press photo from Sunday, the Russian’s right hand holds her left foot behind her head as she spins, an effort...
    Joe Judge hosted an Irish Wake for fired Giants coaches and their families at his New Jersey house on Wednesday to say thank you and celebrate the good times at the end. TMZ paparazzi hiding across the street captured photos of pizza and beer being delivered to Judge’s house, with the ex-Giants coach stepping outside his front door to pay up. But Judge wasn’t wallowing by stuffing his face. He was taking care of his people to the end. He graciously welcomed the coaches and their families to take care of the people who dedicated their last two years to both him and the Giants, moving to New Jersey from all over the country to try and make it work. Safety Logan Ryan and his wife even stopped by. Judge, a Nick Saban-Bill Belichick pupil, no doubt will have plenty of options on where to work next. But Wednesday was his way of trying to close this chapter by putting some smiles on the faces that helped support him. His one regret is probably...
    The U.S. Navy recognized the work American soldiers put in with a 2021 year in review. Dozens of incredible moments were highlighted in the branches "U.S. Navy 2021: The Year in Photos" gallery, which was first shared by the Navy Office of Information.

    Australian astronomers have captured never-before-seen photos of an exploding giant star, 100 times bigger than the sun. The imagery of the supernova shows a powerful burst of light as a shock wave travels through the dying star moments before it detonates. Australian National University astronomer Patrick Armstrong says the event - known as the shock cooling curve - provides clues about what type of star caused the explosion. "This is the first time anyone has had such a detailed look at a complete shock cooling curve in any supernova," he said on Thursday. "We are particularly interested in how the brightness of the light changes over time prior to the explosion." The ANU team captured the "major discovery" using NASA's Kepler space telescope. Australian National University team has captured photos of an exploding star (pictured) that is 100 times bigger than our sun  "Because the initial stage of a supernova happens so quickly, it is very hard for most telescopes to record this phenomenon," Mr Armstrong said. ANU used the new imagery to create a model that helped them...
    Astrophotographers around the world didn't miss their chance on Thursday to capture the final supermoon of the year, a full moon dubbed the "strawberry moon" after the season when it takes place. And the images are spectacular. A supermoon occurs when the moon is at perigee, its closest point to Earth in its orbit. Scientists say it appears larger and brighter than a typical full moon, but they have yet to agree on exactly how to officially classify the celestial phenomenon, so there is some disagreement as to whether June's moon could actually be called a supermoon. "For 2021, some publications consider the four full Moons from March to June, some the three full Moons from April to June, and some only the two full Moons in April and May as supermoons," NASA's Gordon Johnston said.  The June full moon is often called the strawberry moon, named by Native American tribes for the strawberries harvested in parts of North America during this time of year, according to the Farmer's Almanac. It has also been called the blooming moon, green corn moon,...
    Eager skywatchers across the globe were gifted a spectacular annular solar eclipse Thursday morning — and they didn't pass up the opportunity to document it. Millions of people around the world marveled at the sight, which appeared as a glowing "ring of fire" in the night sky.  Astrophotographers pulled out all the stops to capture stunning images of the celestial phenomenon, which was fully visible in parts of Canada, Greenland, the Arctic Ocean and Siberia, and partially visible for much of the rest of northeastern North America, Greenland, northern Europe and northern Asia.  A total solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes directly between the Earth and the sun, completely blocking the sun's light. During an annular solar eclipse, the moon does not completely cover the sun as it passes, leaving some sunlight visible. Because the moon appears smaller under these circumstances, it cannot fully block out the sun, forming what's called a "ring of fire" or "ring of light."  This was just one of two solar eclipses this year. A total solar eclipse will be visible on December 4. ...

New Yorkers were pounding the pavement a little earlier than usual on Thursday morning as they took to the streets to spot the first solar eclipse of 2021 — a “ring of fire” eclipse that was like a blazing halo in the dawn sky. Also called an “annular” eclipse — from the Latin root “anulus” meaning “ring” — the phenomenon occurs when the moon passes directly between the Earth’s line of sight towards the Sun. As the moon’s orbit is currently at one of its furthest points away from Earth, its passing has caused what appears as a black void in the middle of our solar system’s star — rather than the more familiar total solar eclipse. Whereas some parts...
    Skywatchers around the world were treated to the most spectacular full moon of the year in the early morning hours on Wednesday. May 26 marked not just a supermoon, but also a lunar eclipse, or so-called "blood moon."  According to NASA, a blood moon occurs during a total lunar eclipse, when the Earth is positioned directly between the moon and the sun. Earth's atmosphere filters the sunlight, scattering blue light but allowing red light to pass through.  Wednesday also marked the year's best supermoon. A supermoon occurs when the moon appears larger than usual in the night sky because it is at its closest point to Earth in its orbit, known as the perigee.  May's full moon is additionally known as the "Flower Moon," named for the abundance of flowers associated with spring in the Northern Hemisphere.  Astrophotographers around the globe captured breathtaking images of the event, which was clearly visible in Asia and Australia, as well as much of the U.S. and South America. New Zealand  The total lunar eclipse is seen on May 26, 2021, in Auckland, New Zealand.  Phil Walter/Getty...

    FROM flying penguins and dancing kangaroos to laughing lions and startled eagles, the Comedy Wildlife Photography finalists have revealed the magic of the natural world. Ace photographers from around the world have managed to snap rare and comical moments of animals having a moody Monday, getting themselves into a pickle or simply jumping for joy. 10This bird sums up the Monday morning moodCredit: Andrew Mayes One photographer captured two kangaroos fighting and one missed, smacking him in the stomach - but it looks as though the elegant pair are enjoying a splendid ballroom dance. Another snapped an astonished fish in the mouth of an Amazon kingfisher, perhaps wondering whether it might get lucky by showing off its cute pout. And it's probably rare for an eagle to be spooked - but one photographer captured the moment a tiny prairie dog jumped towards the bird with its claws out and startled it long enough to escape to a nearby burrow.

    Jupiter and Saturn, our solar system's two largest planets, were visibly closer together on Monday night than they have been in 800 years — marking an extremely rare celestial event known as the "great conjunction."  The conjunction occurs when the orbits of the two planets align every 20 years, but the event is not always visible, and the planets do not typically come as close together as they did on December 21.  This time around, Jupiter and Saturn were just 0.1 degrees apart — less than the diameter of a full moon.  The planets were so close, they appeared, from some perspectives, to overlap completely, creating a rare "double planet" effect. However, while the planets appeared from Earth to be very, very close, in reality, they are still hundreds of millions of miles apart. The event happened to coincide with the winter solstice and the week of Christmas, but it can occur during any time of year.  If you missed the spectacle, or if your sky appeared cloudy Monday night, don't worry — the planets will still appear extremely...

    BALTIMORE (WJZ/CNN) — A pink supermoon glowed over Maryland and the world overnight. Supermoons appear bigger and brighter in the sky because they are slightly closer to Earth. Interpretations of what qualifies as a supermoon can vary, but there are generally two to four moons that meet the threshold — based on the distance between the moon and Earth — within a given year.

According to NASA, all publications agree that at least the April and May moons fit the classification. This supermoon will be the second-closest full moon of the year, according to EarthSky. April’s full moons are called “Pink” because they correspond with the blooming, spring flowers. This Pink Moon will also be a supermoon, meaning the full moon will occur when the Moon and Earth are at their closest point. This causes the...

    (CNN)In the heart of Cape Town, a control room buzzes with activity. Technicians monitor a grid of screens, scanning data that will soon make its way to astronomers working to deepen our understanding of the universe.Operated by the South African Radio Astronomy Observatory (SARAO), the data is coming from the MeerKAT array -- one of the most advanced radio telescopes in the world. Comprised of 64 connected satellite dishes in a remote part of the Northern Cape, the $330 million telescope has put South Africa on the astronomy map. It's also a key component of the Square Kilometer Array (SKA), an international effort that will see thousands of dishes built in remote regions of South Africa and Australia.South Africa's MeerKAT array is one of the most advanced radio telescopes in the world."This is probably the biggest science project on the whole continent," says Pontsho Maruping, SARAO deputy managing director.

    A ship appears to hover over the sea off the coast of Cornwall, England, in a photo captured by David Morris that shows the optical illusion known as "superior mirage," caused by warm air sitting on top of colder air over bending light as it reaches a viewer's eyes. David Morris/APEX A man says he was "stunned" to look out to sea from a village in Cornwall, in southwest England, and see a giant ship seemingly suspended in mid-air over the water. It wasn't his eyes deceiving him, but a rare weather phenomenon that causes the optical illusion. BBC News meteorologist David Braine explained that what David Morris had captured with his camera lens wasn't levitation, but a "superior mirage," caused by conditions more typical in the frigid arctic than off the English coast. hovering ship David Morris/APEX "Superior mirages occur because of the weather condition known as a temperature inversion, where cold air lies close to the sea with warmer air above it," Braine said. "Since cold air is denser than warm air, it bends light towards...

    The Christmas morning bombing in Nashville left a wake of destruction that was captured in dramatic photos and videos that made downtown Music City look more like Baghdad or Beirut. Cellphone footage shot shortly after the massive blast caught victims wailing in panic and screaming for help as flames consumed vehicles parked along North Second Avenue and black smoke filled the sky. Other shots revealed gaping holes that were once storefronts in historic brick buildings, with broken glass, charred tree limbs and rubble littering the street.
