Birds During a Total Solar Eclipse Copyright: Leonardo Caldas Pictured, a flock of birds in La Serena, Chile flew through the air together during the total solar eclipse that crossed South America this month. The photographer captured the scene in frames from an eclipse video. The next total solar eclipse in 2020 December will also cross South America, while in 2024 April a total solar eclipse will cross North America from Mexico through New England, USA.

A Solstice Night in #paris The night of June 21 was the shortest night for planet Earth's northern latitudes, so at latitude 48.9 degrees north, Paris was no exception. Still, the City of Light had an exceptionally luminous evening. Its skies were flooded with silvery night shining or noctilucent clouds after the solstice sunset. Hovering at the edge of space, the icy condensations on meteoric dust or volcanic ash are still in full sunlight at the extreme altitudes of the mesophere. Seen at high latitudes in summer months, stunning, wide spread displays of northern noctilucent clouds are now being reported.

#Repost @nasa Infused with swaths of red, blue and yellow, this infrared image of Jupiter’s atmosphere reveals that solar wind has a strong influence on the planet. Within just a day of solar wind hitting Jupiter, scientists observed the chemistry in its atmosphere changing and its temperature rising.

Scientists of the Event Horizon Telescope have obtained the first image of a black hole, using observations of the center of the galaxy M87. The image shows a bright ring formed as light bends in the intense gravity around a black hole that is 6.5 billion times more massive than the Sun. This long-sought image provides the strongest evidence to date for the existence of supermassive black holes and opens a new window onto the study of black holes, their event horizons, and gravity.
