That tiny blue dot in the bottom right of this NASA photo is our little planet, Earth.
A huge bolt of lightning struck Poole, Dorset, UK recently. Isn’t there some simple way to harness all this energy?
It could almost be an advert for Cornflakes, this ear of wheat in Dixon, Illinois, USA silhouetted against the setting sun.
Three baby lynx have been born in India. I guess the plural form of lynx is the same as the singular.
It’s not easy to imagine how incredibly large a galaxy is. And if you double it this is what you’ll get. By the way, these two galaxies go under the name of MRK 1034.
Snow leopards are rare enough, so I guess a baby snow leopard must be a very rare sight.
It’s one of the tallest buildings in the world so it probably gets more than its fair share of lightning strikes, and the Willis Tower in Chicago, USA can really take a hit. I know the lightning bolt lasts less than a second but surely the energy it carries is worth trying to harness.
Our moon has an elliptical orbit which inevitably results in it coming closer than normal to the Earth from time to time, a phenomenon dubbed the supermoon.
Recently a supermoon appeared over the ruins in Poseidon, Greece, resulting in this spectacular scene.
Animal cross-breeding is not often done, and is not often possible, though it has been known between the big cats: lion and tiger.
A male lion and female tiger will produce a liger. And a female liger and male lion will end up with a liliger.
