NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity has discovered its first meteorite on the Red Planet, and it’s no puny space rock. The newfound Mars meteorite, which scientist have named “Lebanon,” is nearly 7 feet (2 meters) wide and made of iron. Photos of the meteorite taken by Curiosity also revealed a smaller companion nearby, which is now dubbed “Lebanon B.” “That ‘Lebanon’ is huge, almost 7 feet,” said NASA spokesman Guy Webster from the agency’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California.

Farmers in China have unearthed the nearly complete skeleton of a juvenile armored dinosaur that may be one of the largest ankylosaurs. The finding suggests that this group of beasts grew to be big early in their evolutionary history, researchers say. The new ankylosaur is named Chuanqilong chaoyangensis. The nearly complete skeleton of the ancient reptile was unearthed by local farmers from a quarry in Liaoning province in northeastern China, which has yielded a trove of discoveries of feathered dinosaurs over the last decade.

Back in 2012, the Sun erupted with a powerful solar storm that just missed the Earth but was big enough to “knock modern civilization back to the 18th century,” NASA said. The extreme space weather that tore through Earth’s orbit on July 23, 2012, was the most powerful in 150 years, according to a statement posted on the US space agency website Wednesday. “If the eruption had occurred only one week earlier, Earth would have been in the line of fire,” said Daniel Baker, professor of atmospheric and space physics at the University of Colorado. Instead the storm cloud hit the STEREO-A spacecraft, a solar observatory that is “almost ideally equipped to measure the parameters of such an event,” NASA said.

The National Weather Service Storm Prediction Center said Monday it will add two threat levels to its weather outlooks so people aren’t surprised by really bad storms on days with just a “slight risk” of tornadoes, hail or high winds.
