As the election nears, our country can at times feel like a hideous and hateful place. Let this map of the United States’ river basins made by Imgur user Fejetlenfej remind you that, at the very least, our country can be beautiful. Fejetlenfej—a geographer who sells their maps on Etsy—created the image using QGIS software, which is an open-source geographic information system. The map depicts both“the permanent and temporary streams and rivers,” the creator explained. They divided the…

Moonset Eclipse : Near the closest point in its orbit, the second Full Moon of the month occurred on January 31. So did the first Total Lunar Eclipse of 2018, as the Moon slid through planet Earth's shadow. In a postcard from planet Earth, this telescopic snapshot captures the totally eclipsed Moon as it set above the western horizon and the Chiricahua Mountains of southern Arizona.

Curiosity rover's blue Mars sunset blows away all your attempts at photography - Watching the sunset may seem like a very human activity, but a NASA rover on Mars caught a glimpse of a blue-tinted sunset from the Martian surface. NASA’s Curiosity rover has been roaming Mars’ surface since its landing in 2012, but this is the first time the robot has beamed back photos of a Martian sunset in color. The four-image sunset sequence shows the sun setting behind some red planet mountains. The…
