An Astronaut's Stunning Time Lapse Photo From International Space Station

It's safe to say that the astronauts chilling up on the International Space Station have a pretty good view. Possible the best view of Earth (ha ha). Astronaut Christina Koch had some time on her hands, and made an incredible time lapse photo of the Earth from an 11 minute video. It's definitely not a perspective you see every day, and it is absolutely beautiful.

Astronaut Christina Koch took the photos and film while aboard the ISS, and the composite is made up of over 400 images taken in the space of 11 minutes. At the time, the ISS was traveling over Namibia towards the Red Sea.

Stunning Photos of the Harvest Moon on Friday 13th

On Friday 13th September 2019, the world witnessed a Harvest Moon. The moon goes by many different names, depending on it's size, position in the sky, and timing. The Harvest Moon doesn't actually have a constant date it falls on - rather, it is the full moon that occurs closest to the autumn equinox (when the Earth's equator is almost directly in line with the sun). The Harvest Moon got it's name by being particularly bright and rising early. In the past, this allowed farmers to extend their time in the fields so they could continue to harvest their summer crops by the light of the moon. 

If you missed seeing this Harvest Moon, don't worry. We gathered the best photos of it so you can experience the magic of the Harvest Moon in broad daylight. Enjoy these photos (perhaps while listening to Neil Young's song Harvest Moon) and if you missed this Harvest Moon, there will be plenty more!

DJ Khaled decided to take a spin on his jet skis at night. That didn't turn out well for him and he got very lost. In the face of adversity, he managed to maintain his cool and kept everyone updated on Snapchat. 

At first he's still near civilization but he realizes he's lost. He uses Snapchat to issue a call for help. 



After a while things start to get dangerous. 



Everything goes dark, hope he's ok. 



Luckily, everything turned out fine. He managed to make it home safe and celebrate his feet returning to the ground!
