Fifteen Aerial Photos of Cities Give a Totally Different Perspective

Every city has it's own personality. The winding alleyways, crowded streets, tree-lined rivers and bustling markets of each city feel like they're the first of their kind. There's nothing like eating a bagel in New York, sipping tea in Istanbul, watching the road crossings in Tokyo, eating macaroons in Paris, or waiting for a herd of cows to cross the road in Delhi. 

Every city is recognizable when photographed from street level - but what about from an aerial view? This collection of fifteen aerial photos give you a completely new and unexpected perspective of the cities we all love. Enjoy exploring, travelers!

Eleven Surreal Photos of The 2019 Hunter's Moon

If you looked up during the past two nights, you might have noticed that the moon was bigger and brighter than usual. That's because this full moon was not just any old moon: we just witnessed a Hunter's Moon. This is one of the Native American full moon names that occur each month of the year, signalling a change in season. 

These 12 full moons are named for the activity or people they target. Therefore, the Hunter's Moon occurs around this time that hunters should traditionally begin to hunt game in preparation for winter. Since farmers would have recently harvested their crops during the Harvest Moon that takes place in September, the clear fields and bright moon would serve for perfect hunting conditions. 

Today, most people don't depend on the moon's stages to survive, but we can appreciate it's signaling of a change in the season, and if you're into it, the astrological meaning of the skies. Or you can just appreciate the beauty of the moon. If you didn't get a chance to see this years Hunter's Moon, check out these otherworldly photos that were taken from all over the world.

NASA Released an Amazing 3D Map of the Moon

Most of us see the moon almost every night, but few people have seen a decent high-res picture of the moon, let alone a high-res picture of the dark side of the moon. To be able to see the moon - every side of it - in detail would really require being in space and flying around it. And 99.9% of us Earthlings don't have that opportunity (yet). So once again, NASA has come to the rescue, this time providing us with an amazing 3D map of the whole moon for computer graphics artists to use to their heart's content. For the first time, we can explore the moon (digitally). And it's incredible.

Hilarious Accidental Hats on AI Generated People (25 Photos)

Like so many things in our lives right now, stock photography is being revolutionized by artificial intelligence. This technology is so advanced that it can create completely realistic pictures of people. Generated Photos is a company that has AI generated 100,000 images of peoples faces, of all ages and ethnicities, and they're all available for downloading and use on Google Drive. Some of the photos are impossible to tell apart from real people. 

But, advanced as it is, the AI making these faces still has it's flaws and sometimes botches the photos, making the people look just wrong. In the really extreme cases, the AI has created weird hats (for want of a better word) on these really happy people. And they are hilarious. Bless the AI for trying it's best, but these photos will make you ask "Why? Just why?. It seems that photographers don't have to worry about losing their jobs to AI just yet.

Alien Enthusiasts Think They've Found A Crashed UFO On Google Earth

When Reddit a user posted a video showing a 200 foot long object that had skidded in the snow for over 3000 feet, it wasn't long before believers in aliens confirmed that it is a UFO crash site. Although experts say that the supposed UFO is actually a chunk of ice that fell from an avalanche, it's impossible to know what the truth really is. You'll have to make your own decision about it.

So GQ recently did an article showcasing Fall clothing as a backdrop to male climbers in Joshua Tree National Park:




Well, Outdoor Research didn't like how the women in the story were only portrayed as accessories to the climbers, frolicking in tiny bathing suits and adorning the men as stereotypes.





So they took it upon themselves to answer GQ's article, picture-by-picture using bad*ss women climbers:

Why are celebrities like Miriam Margolyes or Emma Thompson and her husband Greg Wise posing naked with dead fish? To save the fish, of course! Well... not the ones in the pictures obviously but some of their relatives. 



This isn't really a new practice. It's part of a non-profit called Fish Love which is aimed at raising awareness of unsustainable fishing practices. Their goal is to teach people how to choose more sustainable fish to eat. Fish Love has been around since 2009 and has photographed many other celebrities in the past like Gillian Anderson and Helena Bonham Carter.

Essex photographer Martin Le-May captured this epic moment on Monday, in which a weasel is soaring on the back of a woodpecker. It was Tweeted out by birder/wildlife photographer Jason Ward where it quickly went viral and had many people wondering if it was real or photoshopped. It’s apparently very real.

As we walked we heard a distressed squawking and I saw that flash of green. So hurriedly I pointed out to Ann the bird and it settled into the grass behind a couple of small silver birch trees. Both of us trained our binoculars and it occurred that the woodpecker was unnaturally hopping about like it was treading on a hot surface. Lots of wing flapping showing that gloriously yellow/white colour interspersed with the flash of red head feathers. Just after I switched from my binoculars to my camera the bird flew across us and slightly in our direction; suddenly it was obvious it had a small mammal on its back and this was a struggle for life.

He added that the woodpecker managed to get away, while the weasel wandered off into the grass.

Real or not, you can’t put a picture like that online and expect to walk away meme-free.

Here are some of the best responses from Twitter of the #WeaselPecker:

She has one less problem without fashion models wearing giant butterfly wings.

Ariana Grande was performing at the 2014 Victoria's Secret Fashion show Tuesday in London, when model Elsa Hosk almost knocked her to the ground with her costume.

Her face is priceless, and her hashtag about the incident is even better.
