From a macro shot revealing the density of penguin feathers to rainbow cloud spotting, this is something you only see in a video game. Or if you open your eyes and pay attention. Psst! More incredible photos of rarely seen things can be found in our previous posts here, here and here.

This Is What Sunset Looks Like From Space

This Is What Sunset Looks Like From Space

Astro_Alex Report

Even in times of scientific and technological advancements, our beautiful planet remains full of mysteries. From the incredible bismuth crystal that looks like it came from some sort of sci-fi film to the enchanting glowing forest in Japan with its luminescent mushrooms scattered along the forest floor, there are so many exquisite finds on Earth. They make us question how much about the place we inhabit we don’t really know.

Some of the most standout mysteries that have been captivating the imagination of many throughout the years include Stonehenge in Wiltshire, England. The structure consists of a ring of standing stones, with each stone standing approximately thirteen feet high, seven feet wide and weighing 25 tons. It’s believed to have been built about 5000 years ago, but scholars still do not agree on what its purpose could have been.

Another mysterious object is the stone spheres found in Costa Rica, located on the Diquis Delta and on Isla del Cano. There are over three hundred petro spheres scattered throughout the country that are still considered a great, unsolved archaeological mystery. The heaviest of them weighs many tons, and they’re believed to be made of granodiorite.

Is it rare because it's a man and not a woman? Where is it like this? In Spain there aren't women (mothers, aunts, granies) represented in this products, only babies.

I am fascinated by the optical effect of the design. The statue is not at full body length, it's around 3/4, missing the bottom 1/4. This makes the brain believe that the statue goes lower (like if the legs of the statue extended down), therefore it's perceived longer than it actually is. How cool!

The UK Is Full Of Charming Crinkle Crankle Garden Walls

In England you sometimes see these "wavy" brick fences. And curious as it may seem, this shape uses fewer bricks than a straight wall. A straight wall needs at least two layers of bricks to make it sturdy, but the wavy wall is fine thanks to the arch support provided by the waves.

My grandad worked for British Ordnance Survey in the 1950s and 60s, he went out, measured the landscape and then hand drew maps. When he died, we cleared out his home studio and I found at least 6 of these in various draws, boxes etc. I remember sitting with him as a child running them over maps to see where we were in relation to landmarks etc. I still love looking at maps 30 years after his death as it reminds me of the gentle, kind soul he was.

Koalas have human-like fingerprints. They are almost identical, and even under a microscope, it is hard to distinguish the difference between theirs and those of humans.

I made cider from apples like this. It came out bright pink and checked in at a hefty 8.5% abv. We named it “Prider”, put it in a rainbow box and served it up during Pride Week about 6 years ago. 60 pints sold out in about an hour! 🙂
