Bay Of Biscay In Bloom // NASA GSFC

When conditions are just right in the Bay of Biscay, the body of water nestled in the elbow crook between western France and northern Spain, huge blooms of phytoplankton begin to emerge. The marine microorganisms live in the bay all year, but in the spring, the combination of more sunlight, warmer waters and an influx of nutrients carried by ocean currents and freshwater rivers swollen with melted snow creates explosive blooms–those multi-colored swirls in the water.

The massive population explosion is big enough to see from space, and NASA’s Aqua satellite captured this image with the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) earlier this month. The blooms usually die down by May, so this might be one of the last swirly-marine-life photos we get this year.

So cool! From my mom:

Via Reddit via Eric…it gets funnier and funnier the longer I watch. And I cant. Stop. Watching.

The Zhangye Danxia Landform in Gansu province, China. Wow.



I laughed all the way through. And yeah, I’m totally seeing this on Friday.

I recommend you watch it fullscreen. Prepare to me amazed at 2:00 in.

I don’t care about the Harlem Shake, but I FREAKING LOVE ‘Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs’.

This might be the best thing ever. I wonder what Blackstreet thinks.

Mogwai’s score for ‘Les Revenants‘ is amazing. Atmospheric, epic, great music for star-gazing or laying the dark feeling your feels.
