Tonight, a spectacular partial lunar eclipse will grace the skies across many parts of the world on the 50th anniversary of the launch of the historic Apollo 11 moon mission.
Unfortunately, only those in the very easternmost parts of the North American continent will be able to catch a glimpse of this astronomical phenomenon. But don’t worry, because the event will streamed live online. #apollo11 #50thanniversary #moonlanding #space #nasa

Native to warm waters in the South Pacific and Indian oceans, these guys pack a painful sting thanks to venomous spines on their fins. They've become invasive to the southern east coast in the US, outcompeting native reef predators with few of their own. People are encouraged to eat them to help eliminate the invasive populations... What are they? #ropermountain #fish

This caterpillar is new to #ButterflyAdventure this year; can you guess what type it is? They live an unusually long life - more than a month as adults rather than the 1–2 weeks as most butterflies. This is partly because they ingest pollen and nectar, giving them extra protein. #yeahthatgreenville #greenvillesc #ropermountain
