Christian Åslund, a Swedish photojournalist who works with Greenpeace, has made a simple experiment. He took photos of glaciers in Svalbard, Norway from the Norwegian Polar Institute, which were taken almost a century ago and juxtaposed them with his own photos of the same places, which were taken in 2002. He's using the photo series to promote #MyClimateAction, a National Geographic campaign encouraging discussion about climate change, and there could be no better argument in their favor than these comparisons.

It is always inspiring to see unusual and amazing cloud formations. This is one of those situations when a perfectly spherical cloud was captured in Fujisawa, a city in Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan. Some climate experts says that it is a “roll cloud that forms under wind created from a ‘mountain wave’ (or airstreams going over mountains) on a windy day.”
A supermoon is the coincidence of a full moon or a new moon with the closest approach the Moon makes to the Earth on its elliptical orbit, resulting in the largest apparent size of the lunar disk as seen from Earth. The most recent supermoon was seen yesterday on November 14, 2016, which was the closest to Earth since January 26, 1948. The next one like this will not occur until November 25, 2034.
