Solar System Scope Photoshop? NO. These Are Real Animals Katerina Plotnikova did something extremely amazing! She used no photoshop! All poses and animals are real! Comet 'brighter than the moon' will fly-by the Earth in 2013 By Eddie Wrenn Published: 08:45 GMT, 27 September 2012 | Updated: 13:28 GMT, 27 September 2012 They are one of the most spectacular views a human could hope to see - and next year a comet which could outshine the moon is due to fly by the Earth. Comet ISON is visiting the inner solar system and is set to put on spectacular views for the Northern Hemisphere across November and December as it heads towards the sun. It may prove to be brighter than any comet of the last century - visible even in broad daylight - and this may end up being its one and only trip to the solar system, as its trajectory may see it plunge into the sun in a fiery death. Scroll down for video Look to the skies next year: Comet ISON could produce a spectacular show when it flies by next year - similar to the 1997 appearance of Hale-Bopp (pictured) How Hale-Bopp looked above Alaska: Next year's comet is predicted to be even more spectacular, and remain in the skies for weeks
"Earth from Above" "Earth From Above" is the result of the aerial photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand's five-year airborne odyssey across six continents. It's a spectacular presentation of large scale photographs of astonishing natural landscapes. Every stunning aerial photograph tells a story about our changing planet.

Photojournal: NASA's Image Access Home Page Nasa says Jupiter's 'great red spot' is getting smaller Spot is a violent storm In 1800s was estimated to be 25,000 miles (about 40,000 km) in diameterNew pictures show Jupiter's red spot is smaller than it has ever been, measuring just under 10,250 miles (16,100 kilometers) in diameter By Mark Prigg Published: 22:57 GMT, 15 May 2014 | Updated: 09:45 GMT, 16 May 2014 Jupiter’s most distinctive feature – a giant red spot bigger than Earth – is shrinking, images from the Hubble Space Telescope released today have revealed. The so-called 'Great Red Spot' is a violent storm, which in the late 1800s was estimated to be about 25,000 miles (about 40,000 km) in diameter – wide enough for three Earths to fit side by side. The storm, which is the biggest in the solar system, appears as a deep red orb surrounded by layers of pale yellow, orange and white. Scroll down for video Jupiter and the The Great Red Spot in 2014, left; in 1995, top right; 2009, center right; and 2014, bottom right. The spot is actually a violent storm.

36 Strange and Funny Google Street View Photos We wanted to post these awesome Google Street View photos a long time ago, but somehow they got lost along the way. Luckily, I found them while reading Twisted Sifter. We tried our best to find more cool examples of Google Street View images, however almost every source was pointing to Jon Rafman. Montreal based artist Jon Rafman isn’t the original photographer but instead he explores Google Street Views and takes screenshots of the most unusual and funny sights. “The world captured by Google appears to be more truthful and more transparent because of the weight accorded to external reality, the perception of a neutral, unbiased recording, and even the vastness of the project,” said Jon in his interview to Art Fag City. “With its supposedly neutral gaze, the Street View photography had a spontaneous quality unspoiled by the sensitivities or agendas of a human photographer.
