circumhorizontal arcs photographed by (click pic) david england, andy cripe, del zane, todd sackmann and brandon rios. this atmospheric phenomenon, otherwise known as a fire rainbow, is created when light from a sun that is at least 58 degrees above the horizon passes through the hexagonal ice crystals that form cirrus clouds which, because of quick cloud formation, have become horizontally aligned.

I actually think this was one of my favorite and most powerful scenes in the show. Kate Mulgrew expertly portrayed the hurt we’ve all felt at one point or another when we were ostracized by people we wanted so desperately to be accepted by and the fact that this feeling knows no boundaries of age.

ached for her in this scene.

Side note: These don’t have motors. They’re completely momentum/wind-powered and literally just wander around beaches unsupervised like giant abstract monsters.

these are both amazing and COMPLETELY TERRIFYING

Scars of concrete

Kętrzyn, Poland 09-2013

In the center of a wet and dark forest close to Kętrzyn, Poland, history left some indelible marks. Here was built Wolfsschanze, Adolf Hitler’s first Eastern Front military headquarters in World War II. The complex of bunker, which would become one of several Führerhauptquartiere (Führer Headquarters) located in various parts of occupied Europe, was built for the start of Operation Barbarossa - the invasion of the Soviet Union - in 1941.

In October 1944 the Red Army reached the borders of East Prussia during the Baltic Offensive. Hitler departed from the Wolf’s Lair for the final time on 20 November when the Soviet advance reached Angerburg (now Węgorzewo). Two days later the order was given to destroy the complex. However the actual demolition did not take place until the night of 24–25 January 1945.

Despite the use of tons of explosives - one bunker required an estimated 8,000 kg of TNT - most of the complex buildings were only partially destroyed due their immense size and reinforced structures, and almost 70 years later, the ruins of the bunkers are still in the forest, gloomy and threatening, covered by a green moss, breaking the quiet of the nature with their sharp edges.

Tear-drinking Butterflies

In the Amazon, it’s not uncommon to see groups of colorful butterflies fluttering around turtles basking along the river. This is because they drink the turtles’ tears—an invaluable source of salt for the herbivorous butterflies.

This is so cool
