Jupiter’s Great Red Spot Viewed by Voyager I
At about 89,000 miles in diameter, Jupiter could swallow 1,000 Earths. It is the largest planet in the solar system and perhaps the most majestic. Vibrant bands of clouds carried by winds that can exceed 400 mph continuously circle the planet’s atmosphere. Such winds sustain spinning anticyclones like the Great Red Spot — a raging storm three and a half times the size of Earth located in Jupiter’s southern hemisphere. In January and February 1979, NASA’s Voyager 1 spacecraft zoomed toward Jupiter, capturing hundreds of images during its approach, including this close-up of swirling clouds around Jupiter’s Great Red Spot. This image was assembled from three black and white negatives. The observations revealed many unique features of the planet that are still being explored to this day.

"As for paddle boarding at night, I’d say the most important thing is to have little or no wind. This will make for a smoother journey and prevent one from being blown too far offshore. Significant moonlight is important too so that you can see where you’re going since there won’t be any light source besides the LED lights underneath your board. I also think it’s vital that you’re an experienced paddle boarder and are familiar with the area you’re paddle boarding in since it’s much easier to get disoriented at night. Lastly, I’d suggest going with a group and staying close together so that you’ve got support if need be as well as staying relatively close to shore. Otherwise, just enjoy the magic of it!"

The Bizarre Street Art of Daan Botlek | via

Street artist and illustrator Daan Botlek is based in Rotterdam, Netherlands and is known for his strange form of character-driven street art. His generally simplistic, site-specific figures often interact with the space around them, passing in and out of unseen dimensions, shedding skin in the process. Kind of like morbid Keith Haring, no? You can see much more of his work over on Flickr.

So tired
It’s so hard to feel
But it’s alright
Cause I believe
And I guess I’ll dream
I guess I’ll take the time to dream
It’s alright
I’m just sleeping.

Woman Photographs Herself Receiving Strange Looks in Public

“I now reverse the gaze and record their reactions to me while I perform mundane tasks in public spaces. I seek out spaces that are visually interesting and geographically diverse. I try to place myself in compositions that contain feminine icons or advertisements. Otherwise, I position myself and the camera in a pool of people…and wait.

The images capture the gazer in a microsecond moment where they, for unknowable reasons, have a look on their face that questions my presence. Whether they are questioning my position in front of the lens or questioning my body size, the gazer appears to be visually troubled that I am in front of them.”

Thought this was actually really cool and I’d share it with you guys! Takes a lot to get up there and do something like this. Love it!

this is such a fucking important project to me because i am constantly stared at in public in a negative way and turned into some disgusting object for the amusement of others and this is a peaceful way to confront those people
