The Dust Devils of Mars (20 photos)

On the freezing, dry surface of Mars, small disturbances in the thin atmosphere frequently spin up whirlwinds that dance across dunes and plains, kicking up light dust and leaving dark trails. These dust devils and their swirling tracks have been observed by rovers and orbiters for many years now, as scientists learn more about Mars’s atmospheric system and its surface features. The whirlwinds last only moments, and their trails remain for mere weeks, or months, as new dust storms blow in to erase them and the cycle begins again. Gathered below, beautiful images from another world, of this delicate, ephemeral phenomenon.

This image, made by the HiRise camera orbiting Mars aboard NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO), shows swirling patterns left on the Martian surface by passing dust devils. Like on Earth, the whirlwinds often expose materials just underneath the surface, which in this case are darker than the overlaying dust. Image sent to Earth on April 1, 2012.

Photos: Protests Against the Overturning of Roe (30 photos)

In cities and towns across the United States, demonstrations sprang up immediately following the Supreme Court’s decision on Friday that struck down the landmark 50-year-old Roe v. Wade case, removing a federal right to an abortion. Thousands of people marched in streets and gathered in squares to voice their anger and urge lawmakers to take actions to support a woman’s freedom of choice. Gathered below are images of protest from Houston, Atlanta, Boston, Seattle, Denver, Raleigh, St. Louis, Portland, New York, Nashville, and many other locations.

Photos: Devastating Floods Hit the Yellowstone Region (16 photos)

Earlier this week, heavy rains and melting snow near Yellowstone National Park combined, causing rivers to overflow, flooding farms and ranches, washing out roads and bridges, and forcing the park to close. The Yellowstone River hit its highest level in decades, and the surge is now moving through nearby Billings, Montana. When Yellowstone National Park reopens—possibly as soon as next week—it will likely open only the southern half. Park officials are still assessing the amount of work needed to safely reopen the northern half.

Views of the Strawberry Supermoon (14 photos)

Yesterday, sky watchers around the world were treated to views of the so-called strawberry supermoon. June's full moon is called the strawberry moon because it coincides with strawberry-harvesting season in parts of North America. It is also one of the two largest full moons of 2022, when the moon appears about 10 percent larger than average, as it approaches its closest point in orbit—the next supermoon of this year takes place in July. Though the moon might appear larger and brighter, the size difference is actually so small that a casual observer would probably never notice. Nonetheless, photographers across the globe captured the event; here are 14 of the most super images of this year’s strawberry supermoon.

Winners of the 2022 BigPicture Natural World Photography Competition (9 photos)

Entrants in this year’s contest were invited to submit images showcasing life on Earth, and illustrating some of the many threats that our planet faces. Images from this gallery were originally published in bioGraphic, an independent magazine about nature and conservation powered by the California Academy of Sciences, and media partner of the BigPicture Photography Competition. The organizers have once again shared some of the winners and finalists here. The captions were written by the bioGraphic editorial staff and edited for style.

In the predawn hours of a cold winter morning in the French Alps, the photographer Jose Grandío lay still in the snow, waiting for a stoat (Mustela erminea) to emerge from its burrow. Shortly after the sun rose, the stoat climbed out and proceeded to put on a spectacular show. “He seemed to be playing with the fresh snow that had just fallen, making sudden jumps and crawling through the snow,” Grandío recalls. The stoat leaped and danced for about half an hour before returning to his den for the rest of the day. ( Jose Grandío / BigPicture Natural World Photography Competition)

Cheese-Rolling Returns to Cooper’s Hill (16 photos)

Yesterday, after two years of cancellations due to the pandemic, the Cooper’s Hill Cheese-Rolling and Wake took place once again in Gloucester, England, continuing a tradition that dates back at least 200 years. Groups of fearless racers risk life and limb chasing an eight-pound (3.5-kilogram) round of Double Gloucester Cheese down an extremely steep and uneven hill, with a 1:1 gradient in some sections. The winner gets to keep the cheese.

The End of Shanghai’s Two-Month COVID Lockdown (22 photos)

Near the end of March, in the face of a growing COVID-19 outbreak, officials in Shanghai instituted strict lockdown controls, the start of what would become two months of tight restrictions imposed on 25 million residents. Now, following a decline in COVID-19 cases, those same authorities say they are taking steps toward reopening China’s largest city. Barriers that fenced in neighborhoods are coming down, and residents are cautiously venturing out into parks and shopping areas. Gathered below are images from the past few weeks of lockdown, and early signs of Shanghai’s reopening.

Photos: Sandstorms Sweep Across Parts of the Middle East (16 photos)

In recent months, an unusually high number of sandstorms has engulfed parts of Iraq, Iran, Syria, Kuwait, and Saudi Arabia. The ongoing series of storms has sent thousands to hospitals with breathing problems, and caused the closure of airports, schools, and government offices. Officials and experts are blaming the growing frequency and intensity of sandstorms in the region on the mismanagement of agricultural areas, an ongoing drought, and the effects of climate change.

Water Levels in Lake Mead Reach Record Lows (21 photos)

Lake Mead, North America’s largest artificial reservoir, formed on the Colorado River between Nevada and Arizona, has shrunk to historic lows—dropping to about 30 percent of its capacity. The reservoir is a major source of water for Arizona, Nevada, and California, as well as part of Mexico, serving nearly 25 million people and huge agricultural areas. A combination of drought, climate change, and growing regional demand for water have driven the reservoir to its lowest levels since the 1930s; its water level is now 1,050 feet (and falling), down from an all-time high of 1,225 feet in 1983.
