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!

Photographer Places Giant Cats In Photos With Himself And It's Something Out Of A Ghibli Movie

You can say that the artist, Petechka Odnobokov (Peter, for short), is larger than life! Peter places these images of giant cats (who you may have seen circulating the interwebs) in urban, and not so urban landscapes. A man with glasses and a beard is also present in each and every photo, this is Peter himself! 

Peter is always looking at ease and relaxed in the pics as the giant felines roam about (or nap about). Peter writes under one of the photos, a photo with cats is a peculiar way of communicating with the world around him. This allows you to draw a bridge between his total isolation from childhood and the outside world with other people.

The world he has created is certainly better than our reality!

Moon of the Day: Check Out These SuperMoon Pics — ICYMI

Look! In the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s the another Supermoon?

In what feels like a monthly occurrence at this point, people tilted their head backs to get better look at the night sky and snap a photo of the supermoon. Bigger than the regular moon, a supermoon happens when a full moon occurs while the moon is closest to Earth in its orbit, and people love getting a shot of that sucker.

It’s hard to blame them. As cynical as we want to be about the supermoon because it feels like we have one every five minutes, it does make for a pretty cool picture. Twitter’s got a bunch of them, as supermoon fever hit the internet while you were sleeping.

Hey, don’t feel bad if you missed it, there’s always five minutes from now or simply check out some pictures of the supermoon in all its glory.

Ever want to chuck your GoPro to get good aerial shots but don't have the right foam padding not to break it? Enter AER.





Their new invention--basically a giant Nerf arrow around a GoPro--makes it possible.



The videos sound like they wouldn't be worth seeing, but are surprisingly action-packed little bits of fun. I especially like the parts where it looks like you'll run smack into someone at the end of each one:

Remember that friendly shark in 'Finding Nemo' who swore never to eat fish again in his life?  They found him!

And by "they found him" we mean, someone took a picture of a shark whose horrifyingly sharp teeth form a large, menacing grin.

Okay, the smile does look a little goofy. A retiree named Kenneth “Wayne” MacWilliams apparently captured this off the coast of Florida and shared it with Caters News Agency. Apparently this is a lemon shark, the "friendliest" of sharks.

This guy just found the "holy grail of Western Americana," and he only paid $2 for it.

Randy Guijarro of Freemont, California purchased a 4x4 tin photograph from an antique shop back in 2010. Little did he know, he was now in possession of the second confirmed image of bandit Billy the Kid.

The photograph shows Bill the Kid playing croquet with a group of his friends. According to a firm specializing in Western Americana, the image could be worth as much as $5 million.

That's what we call a good buy!
