Wildlife photographers Peter and Beverly Pickford traveled over four years to all seven continents to explore the most untouched landscapes on earth. From Antarctica’s Bransfield Strait, where Cape petrels forged on a towering iceberg, to Namibia’s Namib Desert, where an oryx stood among dead trees in a dust storm, the places they visited are some of the most extreme habitats on the planet.

One of the best methods to present the content of your website is by using a technique called parallax scrolling. This has the effect of creating an illusion which causes a feeling of immersion by creating interesting visual effects. In the late 1980’s and early 90’s, games like Super Mario Brothers and Sonic the Hedgehog created the illusion of depth by incorporating layered background images that would scroll with the character at varying speeds. For instance, as the player would run, a distant background image of mountains would move slowly, while closer background images would move faster.
Launched last November 19 from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, the satellite now known as GOES-16 can now observe planet Earth from a geostationary orbit 22,300 miles above the equator. Its Advanced Baseline Imager captured this contrasting view of Earth and a gibbous Moon on January 15. Source: GOES-16: Moon
