This star symbolizes the featured content on Wikipedia.

Each day, a summary (roughly 1000 characters long) of one of Wikipedia's featured articles (FAs) appears at the top of the Main Page as Today's Featured Article (TFA). The Main Page typically gets around 15 million hits per day.

TFAs are scheduled by the TFA coordinators: Dank (Dan), Jimfbleak, Ealdgyth and Wehwalt. WP:TFAA displays the current month, with easy navigation to other months. If you notice an error in an upcoming TFA summary, please feel free to fix it yourself; if the mistake is in today's or tomorrow's summary, please leave a message at WP:ERRORS so an administrator can fix it. Articles can be nominated for TFA at the TFA requests page, and articles with a date connection within the next year can be suggested at the TFA pending page. Feel free to bring questions and comments to the TFA talk page, and you can ping all the TFA coordinators by adding "{{@TFA}}" in a signed comment on any talk page.

York City players with trophy at the 2012 FA Trophy Final

Since 1980, York City F.C., a professional association football club based in York, North Yorkshire, England, has seen many promotions and relegations. The team won its only English Football League title after finishing first in the Fourth Division in 1983–84 with 101 points, the most season points scored by any team at the time. After four seasons in the Third Division, they were relegated in 1987–88. They beat Crewe Alexandra at Wembley Stadium in the play-off final in 1992–93, winning promotion to the renamed Second Division. Later in the 1990s, they knocked Premier League teams Manchester United and Everton out of the League Cup in successive seasons. At the end of 2003–04, they lost their Football League status. The 2011–12 FA Trophy (celebration pictured) was the first national knockout competition won by York, and they returned to the Football League that season. (Full article...)

Kosuke Morita and Hiroshi Matsumoto (Riken, Japan)

Nihonium is a synthetic chemical element with symbol Nh and atomic number 113. It is extremely radioactive; its most stable known isotope, nihonium-286, has a half-life of about 10 seconds. In the periodic table, nihonium is a transactinide element at the intersection of period 7 and group 13. Its creation was reported in 2003 by a Russian–American collaboration at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research in Dubna, Russia, and in 2004 by a team of Japanese scientists at Riken in Wakō, Japan. The discoveries were confirmed by independent teams working in the United States, Germany, Sweden, and China. In 2016 the element was officially recognised and naming rights were assigned to Riken, as they were judged to have been first to observe it. The name, approved in the same year (announcement pictured), derives from a Japanese word for Japan, Nihon. Few details are known about nihonium, as it has only been formed in very small amounts that decay away within seconds. (Full article...)
