Really enjoyed watching the SpaceX launch the other day.  The coolest part, though, was not the launch, but the dual rocket landing.  So cool!  Here it is from an Atlantic gallery of the launch:

Recent National Geographic photo of the day:


“Whilst out snorkelling late one afternoon on Jervis Bay [in Australia], I stumbled across this Common Stingaree gracefully gliding over the shallow sand flats,” says Your Shot photographer Jordan Robins. “As the sun was setting, I managed to captured this over-under image where you can see above and below the water captured in a single exposure.”

Oh my, so many good choices in this “Animals on the Playing Field” gallery in the Atlantic.  Couldn’t resist the very last one.

From a recent Atlantic gallery:

A church and remains of an ancient village. which are usually covered by water, are seen inside the reservoir of Sau, in Vilanova de Sau, Catalonia, Spain, on January 11, 2018. One reservoir built in the early 1960s, submerging a village called San Roman de Sau and its 11th-century romanesque church, is so low on water that the ruins of buildings which are usually under water are now uncovered.

Am I the only one who cannot resist a good fox photo?  Another from the Atlantic photos of the week gallery:

A fox walks through a cemetery at dusk on January 10, 2018, in Bath, England. Although the number of foxes in the UK is actually on the decline, according to a recent study the number of urban foxes in England has quadrupled over the past 20 years with an estimated 150,000 foxes in England, or about one for every 300 urban residents.
