There are times when someone reminds you how beautiful the world can be. This is one of those times. Indonesian based photographer Pink Sword's jaw-dropping photos are simple yet elegant. Most of his silhouettes are snapshots of everyday events taking place in front of the setting sun, reminding us of the beautiful moments in life.
On Sunday, May 20, 2012, there was an annular solar eclipse. This occurs when the Moon passes between the Earth and Sun, but the Moon's diameter appears smaller than the Sun. This creates a ring that is also known as the Ring of Fire. Here are some of the great pictures from the event.
If you looked up into the night sky on Sat. May 5th, you may have noticed the perigee moon aka "Supermoon". The once a year event occurs when the moon is closest to Earth, and is magnified when there is a full moon. If you didn't catch it, The Big Picture has you covered with this awesome set.
