There are lots of wonders in our world. We here facts and information every day we’ve never heard of before.
Here are some photos that enlighten and entertain us.

This is a long exposure picture of fireflies or lightning bugs. Their flashes of light tend to get around while they’re lit up while they are usually momentary.

Space flight is just as impressive from this angle at 34,000 feet as it is from the ground. NASA’s Vehicle Assembly Building at Kennedy Space Center is in the middle of the image. The two structures down the road from it are launch pads.
You might have to cross the world’s longest conveyor belt in Western Sahara. It stretches 61 miles, from a phosphate mine in Morocco at one end to the ocean at the other end.
A feature of cultural festivals in Catalonia is the tradition of building human towers or “castells” up to 10 layers tall. It all started as way back in the early 18th century.
