On August 21, the skies above a large swath of the contiguous United States will darken to an eerie twilight as the moon passes between the Earth and the sun, casting a dark shadow on the face of our planet.
And we’re here for it — in a big way.
This marks the first time a total solar eclipse will grace skies above the lower 48 states since 1979, and it’s the first eclipse of its kind to pass from coast to coast in about a century.
The eclipse will pass from Oregon to South Carolina, and we’ll bring it to you live with expert insight from Tennessee and New York City, along with images from dozens of livestreams from NASA and others. Read more…
Ever wondered how one goes about making those photos where only one or two objects are moving, while everything else seems to be frozen in time? They are called cinemagraphs and are basically done by mixing a short clip with a photo, all taken from the very same camera position. Most of the image is just the picture, but a few parts have frames from the clip imposed on top.
And, wouldn’t you know it, there are a bunch of apps out there that make it super-easy to make cinemagraphs straight on your phone. All you need is a scene, a good idea, and preferably a tripod. …

Matthew Knowles is the first member of the Carter-Knowles dynasty to speak out on the birth of the twins.
Beyoncé‘s dad tweeted (and Instagrammed) a happy birthday card to the twins on this very special Father’s Day for him. “They’re here,” he wrote, but kept all other details private. He will presumably make soldiers out of the twins.
Knowles was a longtime manager of Destiny’s Child and Beyoncé, but their relationship has had some rough patches and he’s no longer working for her behind the scenes. Her dad is featured in Lemonade, though, and it seems like this family can get through anything. Read more…
When coming upon a 14-foot great white shark in shallow waters, the universal response is to turn to a friend and say, as calmly as possible, “That’s a f*cking white shark, dude. Holy shit.”
Dale Pearson and a friend saw a figure struggling in the shallow waters near their homes in Baja California, Mexico. Thinking it would be a whale or a hammerhead shark, the two men trudged out to help the animal. That’s when they realized that it wasn’t a whale, but a large great white that had been injured by a boat propellor.
