The European Space Agency (ESA) has released a breathtaking mosaic of the Red Planet, stitched together from images taken by the agency’s Mars Express spacecraft. The mosaic is phenomenally detailed, showing a complex range of landscapes – the resolution in the center of the image is roughly 1 km per pixel.

Bären in Alaska beim Fischfang (Livestream)

#Natur, live

It’s that time of year when the brown bears of Katmai National Park in Alaska are hungry for a fresh fish feast. And you can watch them capture spawning salmon straight out of Brooks Falls on this webcam.

Entstehung einer Windhose


In this amazing photomontage we get to see the evolution of a tornado that formed north of Minneola, Kansas on May 24, 2016. The photo is a composite of eight images shot in two sequences. According to photographer Jason Weingart, this prolific supercell went on to produce at least 12 tornadoes and at times had two and even three tornadoes on the ground at once.

This image was most recently awarded first place in the Wikimedia Commons 2018 Picture of the Year. The image was also a Jury’s Choice award winner in the 2017 Wiki Science Competition in the United States.

Sturm auf dem Saturn


It was one of the largest and longest lived storms ever recorded in our Solar System. First seen in late 2010, the above cloud formation in the northern hemisphere of Saturn started larger than the Earth and soon spread completely around the planet. The storm was tracked not only from Earth but from up close by the robotic Cassini spacecraft then orbiting Saturn. Pictured here in false colored infrared in February, orange colors indicate clouds deep in the atmosphere, while light colors highlight clouds higher up. The rings of Saturn are seen nearly edge-on as the thin blue horizontal line. The warped dark bands are the shadows of the rings cast onto the cloud tops by the Sun to the upper left. A source of radio noise from lightning, the intense storm was thought to relate to seasonal changes when spring emerges in the north of Saturn. After raging for over six months, the iconic storm circled the entire planet and then tried to absorb its own tail — which surprisingly caused it to fade away.
