This movie, built with data collected during the European Space Agency's Huygens probe on Jan. 14, 2005, shows the operation of the Descent Imager/Spectral Radiometer camera during its descent and after touchdown. The almost four-hour-long operation of the camera is shown in less than five minutes. That's 40 times the actual speed up to landing and 100 times the actual speed thereafter.

Yummy Moon by artist Yona Lee uses 450 partially eaten Nilla Wafers to depict the different phases of the Moon. A photo on Lee's site shows the artist using a projector to map the image and match the shape of the cookies to various shapes needed to display the Moon's phases.

Strand managed to capture a similar halo around the moon and sun in Östersund, Sweden 10 hours apart. Put the two together, and you have a cool-looking surreal skyscape!
