Nest of the Eagle Nebula

What surrounds the Eagle Nebula? The inside of the Eagle Nebula contains ‘eggs’evaporating gaseous globules — that typically reside in tremendous pillars of gas and dust and where stars form. This image, though, dramatically captures the area surrounding the Eagle Nebula, showing not only the entire Eagle shape, but also enormous volumes of glowing gas and dark dust. Cataloged as M16, the Eagle emission nebula lies about 6,500 light years away and is visible with binoculars toward the constellation of the Serpent (Serpens).

Princes Highway ~ Geelong, Australia

The Princes Highway is a major road in Australia, extending from Sydney to Port Augusta via the coast through the states of New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia. It has a length of 1,941km taking quite an indirect and lengthy route. Because of the rural nature and lower traffic volumes over much of its length, the Princes Highway is a more scenic and leisurely route than the main highways between these major cities.

Tutti Frutti: Fruit Cherishing Turned Into Colorful Self-Portraits

Compiled from: DesignYouTrust.com

Meet Cristina Otero, a resourceful and imaginative young artist who loves fruit. Cristina was born and lives in Madrid and started photography as young as thirteen. Her work became quickly renowned and she was the youngest photographer who has ever exhibited solo in a Spanish gallery in Valencia. Amiable for social media, Cristina’s work transfers emotions with a specific artistic expression for someone as young as her. A rare bonus to her photos is that she models herself and uses her body and her facial emotional voice to present the dramatic art.

Soyuz vs Supermoon

Faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, and able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, this Soyuz rocket stands on the launch pad at Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on November 14. Beyond it rises a supermoon, but fame for exceptional feats of speed, strength, and agility is not the reason November’s Full Moon was given this popular name. Meanwhile, the mild mannered Soyuz rocket is scheduled to launch its Expedition 50/51 crew to the International Space Station, November 17.

The 870-Year-Old Historic Sausage Kitchen Of Regensburg

125km north of Munich lies the old medieval town of Regensburg, situated at the confluence of three rivers — the Danube, Naab and Regen. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Regensburg is famous for its historic medieval center containing as many as 1500 listed buildings, the largest such collection north of the Alps. Among the most notable sights in town, is a 12th-century-old stone bridge over the Danube and its contemporary and aptly titled ‘Historic Sausage Kitchen’ that has been serving fine fried sausages to patrons for nearly 900 years. It is perhaps the oldest continuously open public restaurant in the world.
