"Where there is perhaps a province in which the photograph can tell us nothing more than what we see with our own eyes, there is another in which it proves to us how little our eyes permit us to see." -Dorothea Lange

Wonder what an eye with stitches in it looks like? Of course you do. This particular patient had a disorder called Keratoconus, which is a thinning and warping of the cornea that gives it more of a cone shape, resulting in greatly degraded vision. Treatment requires a replacement cornea, usually taken from recently deceased individuals.  *spooky*

Birds have four types of cone cells in their eyes, whereas humans have three. This gives them the ability to see many more colours than humans, as well as the ability to see ultraviolet light. The left side is how we see peacock feathers, and the right side is how peacocks see them. *the more you know*

NASA astronaut Don Pettit took some absolutely amazing long exposure shots while on the International Space Station a couple of months ago. The effect creates light trails tracking the movements of stars, cities, lightning etc. The exposures are anywhere from 10 to 15 minutes and were created by taking 30 second exposures and using imaging software to overlay the photos on one another.
