    This is a video from Chelyabinsk, Russia, of what appears to be a triple sunrise (aka a sun dog -- I saw one in Minnesota once). Obviously, it's not ACTUALLY a triple sunrise though because earth only has two suns. It just appeared to have three in this case due to a halo eff... / Continue →

    Note: Larger version HERE. This is a beautiful composite shot of yesterday's 'ring of fire' eclipse as viewed from Cape York, Australia. So that's what all the kangaroos were watching yesterday. Me? I didn't watch anything but my little sister for two hours while my mom wen... / Continue →

    There are some insane sun pictures taken by greeting card designer/self-proclaimed space cowboy (interesting combo) Alan Friedman IN HIS OWN BACKYARD. In my backyard? *peeking out curtains* My roommate passed out in his boxers. Oh -- here comes company! (It's a raccoon) Us... / Continue →
