    On August 21, a total solar eclipse was visible all across North America from the West to East Coast for the first time in 99 years. Millions of Americans gazed through protective glasses, cameras and telescopes, as the moon blotted out the midday sun.

    The "Great American Eclipse" was seen across a narrow portion of the contiguous United States, while in the rest of the world the phenomenon was visible only as a partial eclipse.

    The White House joined millions of Americans in watching this once-in-a-lifetime astronomical show: Donald and Melania Trump even risked looking at it without special glasses.

      This incredible squid with tentacles above its head was captured on a video by a team of scientists on the exploration vessel Nautilus. It looks like a fragile glass creation: due to its amazing transparency, one can clearly see its cigar-shaped digestive gland, though color-changing chromatophores flash reddish hues to help the squid blend in.
