Perspective in space. There are people who believe we are all there is, that there can be nothing else but us. Can people really be so ARROGANT, SELF-INVOLVED, and IGNORANT to think that we on planet earth are the only ones in our galaxy??!!?! And we in this solar system with our Sun & Planets are in the middle of just one arm of just ONE galaxy in the ENTIRE universe....!!!!
Whether we went round the earth or round and round the garden like a teddy-bear it would make any difference! J- but its the solar system! SH- ugh! What does that matter! THIS is my hard drive and i only keep stuff thats useful, REALLY useful, if i ever did know Ive deleted it.

What is the impact of our plastic use on the ocean's animal life? A new infographic from Project AWARE sheds a bit of light on the sheer scale of the problem, and the incredible number of animals affected by our plastic problem. Project AWARE states that as much as 6 million tons of disposable goods enter the ocean every year, and that the animals that live in the water are greatly affected.

Sea turtle hatchlings. Just a little fact..did you know that the sex of the turtle is determined by where they are in the nest. They are a Temperature-dependent sex determination animal. The the eggs closer to the bottom of the nest are boys where it is warmer and the ones near the top where the nest is cooler will be girls.

The wonderful astrophotographer César Cantú takes amazing pictures of the sky, and his shots of the Sun are truly cool. On Wednesday, August 8, 2012, he took this image of the Sun and a sunspot called Active Region 1524

Wow! What a view of Active Region 1542 on the Sun! César Cantú from the Chilidog Observatory in Monterrey, Mexico says this is “another way” of looking at the active region. “It is an inverted image,” César said via email, which means it is essentially a negative which is then processed. “The process was done with software: Registax, PhotoshopCS5 and PixInsight,” he said. César took this image on August 8, 2012. Note the incredible detail of the Sun’s swirling surface
Incredible view of an active region on the Sun César took this image on August 8, 2012. Note the incredible detail of the Sun’s swirling surface, the black bottomless pit of a sunspot, a tornadic-like prominence on the right and other wisps of solar material just above the surface. He used a Meade 10 inch SC, with Coronado 90 mm and BF30 filters, along with a DMK31 camera. “The focal length is 2500 mm and correlated with the camera, approximately 210 X,” César said.
Active site on sun
Sunspot (active region 1542)
An Hα filter, which blocks almost all the light from the Sun except for a very narrow slice of color where hydrogen emits light, and in fact this is preferentially given off by hydrogen under the sway of magnetic fields on the Sun, so this image accentuates magnetic activity. You can see lots of structures like the sunspots and the plasma flowing along magnetic fields – especially along the Sun’s edge, where they’re called prominences.

Lion's Mane Jellyfish - Capable of attaining a bell diameter of 8.2 ft, these jellyfish can vary greatly in size. At 120 feet in length, the largest known specimen was longer than a blue whale and is considered one of the longest known animals in the world.
Lion's-mane Jellyfish ~ The largest animal in the world, the bell of the Artic Lion's Mane is known to be able to grow up to 8 feet in diameter, and their tentacles can acquire the length of 150 feet.

Hwy 89 takes you from Kanab Utah to Page Arizona. The side of the mountains have spectacular colors (better that the Grand Canyon, Bryce, the Painted Dessert, the slot canyons and even White Pocket) due to their encrusted minerals like iron oxides, manganese, cobalt and others that geologists describe.
These diamonds, weighing over 50 carats each, were found in Russia's Yakutia mine.

✿ Small Giant Clams~Tridacna Maxima is a species of bivalve found throughout the Indo-Pacific.The attractive colours of the small giant clam are the result of pigment cells, which have a crystalline structure inside. These are thought to protect the clam from the effects of intense sunlight, or bundle light to enhance photosynthesis, the energy-producing process carried out by the tiny algae living within. Found in Africa, India, China, Australia, Southeast Asia and the islands of the Pacific. ✿
