The Moon Seen Through A Super Zoomed In Camera Shows Stunning Detail

These days, most cameras have two types of zoom. Digital zoom, which rarely works well, and the much more optimal optical zoom, which physically zooms in using the lens of the camera. German nature lover Naturbeobachtungen von Lothar Lenz has a Nikon Coolpix P900 with a monstrous 83x optical zoom capability. When handled correctly, he was able to show the moon actually moving from earth. This video has gone viral with over 1.5 million hits!

The Moons Of Mars Explained

Mars has a moon? Yes, actually it has two moons, though they are extremely tiny and cute. They aren’t even that round as they are so small their gravity is too weak to properly round them off. Education channel Kurzgesagt explains all there is to know about the moons of Mars in this new video

How Big Is The Moon Really

The moon seems small when looked up at in the night sky. But it’s really not small at all! So how big is our moon really? As educational group Kurzgesagt explains, our moon is actually the biggest in the solar system in relation to its planet and is much larger than Pluto. It may surprise you to learn that China, the US, Brazil, and Europe could all fit on the moon with a little room to spare. 

  

Thanks Philipp!

Astronauts Attacked By Monster On The Moon Beans Commercial

Computer animation studio Cinesite has gone viral with this humorous mock commercial for beans. 

A crew of astronauts on the moon are attacked by a giant monster reminiscent of the great Rancor from Return of the Jedi. After the attack, it seems one astronaut may have successfully escaped, but a common reaction from eating beans gives him away. 

The short film, simply titled Beans, has already amassed over 650,000 views, and is featured by TastefullyOffensive, AdWeek, and Neatorama

Juno Spacecraft Passes By Earth And Moon

The space age may be in its infancy, but it’s still here. 

NASA‘s Juno spacecraft is traveling to Jupiter, and is set to reach the gassy planet by July of 2016. The craft is outfitted with a slew of special equipment to track, test, and observe space. 

One sensor is a special camera “optimized to track faint stars” which recently had a very unique view of the Earth and our moon.

From 600,000 miles away, Juno captured one frame at a time and sent the footage back to Earth to be processed into this very special video. 

Already, the clip has amassed over half a million views!
