NASA’s Juno spacecraft has captured an amazing photo of Jupiter’s dynamic surface, or to be more specific, a multitude of swirling clouds in the planet’s dynamic North North Temperate Belt with several bright-white “pop-up” clouds as well as an anticyclonic storm, known as a white oval. Two citizen scientists composited the photograph using data from the spacecraft’s JunoCam imager, and an anticyclonic storm, known as a white oval, can also be seen in the image.

Photographer Noah Kalina captured a self portrait every day for the past 20 year, starting on January 11, 2000. This project began long before the concept of a “selfie” became popular, which meant he had to use cameras with flippable viewfinders so he could see himself before snapping each photo. To date, he’s missed just 27 out of 7,305 days, along with a handful of images from August 2003 that were lost in a hard drive crash. Read more for the time-lapse clip.
The Boeing F-15 Eagle may not be the latest and greatest aircraft that our military has in its arsenal, but it’s still a sight to behold in the skies, especially during sunrise. This twin-engine, all-weather tactical fighter aircraft was originally designed by McDonnell Douglas, first flew in July 1972, and entered service in 1976.

One sight you can never tire of is of Earth from above regardless of what year it may be. In this image captured by a NASA astronaut, we see stars glitter in the night sky above the Earth’s atmospheric glow, as the International Space Station orbited 260 miles above the Earth. The crew was just about to cross over the Caspian Sea when this image was snapped. Read more for a video and additional information.
NASA shared an image today that an International Space Station astronaut took of a full Moon rising over a frigid Hudson Bay in northern Canada. Looking north from the ISS, you can see Earth’s horizon gradually fade into the darkness of the polar night. This image wasn’t taken at dusk, as these small villages and towns along these shores in Manitoba Province receive just 6 to 7 hours of sunlight each day in December.

Photographer Caleb Holder was filming a multi-vehicle pileup in Texas on Friday when suddenly a second 18-wheeler jackknifed to avoid a red SUV that changed lanes in front of it. The truck then swerved off the road and rolled over on its side, hitting several vehicles as it slid into a ditch directly in front of Holder. Read more for two videos and additional information.
The Boeing C-17 Globemaster III is essentially a large military transport aircraft developed for the United States Air Force (USAF) from the 1980s to the early 1990s by McDonnell Douglas. This aircraft can most often be found on tactical / strategic airlift missions, transporting troops and cargo throughout the world. This photographer managed to capture one flying through Star Wars Canyon in California. Read more for two videos and additional information.

A photographer captured some interesting footage of Just Enough Room Island, also known as Hub Island, located in the Thousand Islands chain, belonging to New York, United States. It’s currently known as the world’s smallest inhabited island, and measures around 3,300 square feet. The island was acquired by the Sizeland family in the 1950s, and consists of a house, tree, shrubs, and a small beach. Read more for a video and additional information.
Let’s face it, most drones aren’t designed for extended flights, and that even includes the professional models. Introducing Zero Zero Robotics’ V-Coptr Falcon, which is touted as the world’s first drone with a “V-shaped bi-copter” design. In other words, rather than use four rotors for flight, the Falcon has just two at the end of arms that extend out from the top, but comes equipped with tilting technology. You can easily fold these arms inwards when not in use, all into a portable 730g package. Read more for a video and additional information.
