As the number of cases of COVID-19 worldwide nears 65 million, and the number of deaths attributed to the disease approaches 1.5 million, many countries are enduring a crushing surge in numbers.

Gathered below are photographs from around the world of the current battle against COVID-19, taken over the past few weeks.

2020 Hubble Space Telescope Advent Calendar (25 photos)

It is time, once again, for one of my favorite holiday traditions: the 13th annual Hubble Space Telescope Advent Calendar. Every day until Friday, December 25, this page will present one new incredible image of our universe from NASA’s Hubble telescope. Be sure to come back every day until Christmas, and follow us on Twitter or Facebook for daily updates. Near the end of what has been a very difficult year, I hope you can enjoy these amazing and awe-inspiring images, as well as the efforts of the science teams that have brought them to Earth. It’s such a blast for me to put this calendar together every December.

Wishing you all a merry Christmas, happy holidays, and peace on Earth.

Photos: The 2020 Nagorno-Karabakh War (40 photos)

One week ago, on November 10, a Russian-brokered ceasefire agreement was signed by the president of Azerbaijan and the prime minister of Armenia, ending six weeks of warfare over disputed territory in the Nagorno-Karabakh region. It is estimated that thousands of fighters and more than a hundred civilians were killed in the fierce conflict. Nagorno-Karabakh—officially part of Azerbaijan, but controlled by ethnic Armenians—broke away from Azerbaijan in a six-year-long war that ended in 1994, but was never completely resolved. In September of this year, simmering conflicts broke out into war once again, with each side blaming the other for escalations. The new ceasefire agreement cedes control of large areas of disputed territory back to Azerbaijan, and places 2,000 Russian soldiers in the area to act as peacekeepers. As the handover date approached last weekend, some villagers set their own homes on fire before fleeing to Armenia.

Winners of Close-Up Photographer of the Year (17 photos)

The second year of the Close-Up Photographer of the Year competition has just come to a close, and the winners have been announced. The contest “celebrates close-up, macro, and micro photography,” among seven separate categories. More than 6,500 entries were received from 52 countries this year. Organizers have been kind enough to share some of the winners and finalists with us below.

Little Ball. The Young Close-Up Photographer of the Year, Tamás Koncz-Bisztricz, placed first in the Young category for this image of a yellow globular springtail near his hometown of Csongrád-Bokros, Hungary. "One frosty winter’s morning I headed out to take some extreme macro shots at the surface of some frozen water that had pooled in tracks left by a tractor. Crouching down, I spotted some yellow globular springtails (Sminthurus maculatus), which feed in the sunrays reflected from the ice. I used LED flashlights to illuminate one of them, and came away with this picture." (© Copyright Tamás Koncz-Bisztricz /
