Do I really have to repost this one every time I share a cool spider macro image? Appreciate your spiderbros.

On July 22 2009 the longest and brightest solar eclipse of the 21st century lasted for 6 minutes, 39 seconds. The shadow from the eclipse was only visible on the ground in certain regions across the Pacific and Indian oceans for a very brief period of time. A mathematician from the Czech Republic and some of his colleagues were able to capture and composite 31 photographs from that day's events. The wispy lines visible around the moon are actually the sun’s corona. Another solar eclipse of that magnitude is not expected until 2132.

Believe it or not, these two circles are perfectly round. Optical illusions like this work because of the depth perception mechanism in your brain that allows you to visualize objects in 3D.

Miami Art Week 2013: Glass

Of all the materials put to use and on display during Miami's art extravaganza, we saw several shimmering, shiny—but also innovative—works utilizing glass.
