  • Photo of the Day: Derek Jeter Before He Was A New York Yankee Icon

    Derek Jeter recently announced that he would be retiring following the 2014 season. Not only will Jeter spend his entire career with the Yankees but fascinatingly enough he was born in New Jersey and was a diehard Yankee fan growing up. We found this cool photo of a teenage Jeter when he was attending Kalamazoo Central High School where he was named the 1992 Gatorade High School Player of the Year award, and USA Today’s High School Player of the Year.

  • Photo of the Day: Spectacular Fresh Impact Crater On Mars

    A dramatic, fresh impact crater dominates this image taken by the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera on NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter on Nov. 19, 2013. Researchers used HiRISE to examine this site because the orbiter’s Context Camera had revealed a change in appearance here between observations in July 2010 and May 2012, bracketing the formation of the crater between those observations.

  • Photo of the Day: LeBron James Dunking As Five Knicks Players Stand In Awe

    The Miami Heat went into MSG and showed the New York Knicks who’s boss yesterday. At one point, the Knicks were up 16-points but then LeBron and the Heat turned on the jets and won 99-93. LeBron is having a historic season and he was stellar once again — with 29 points, 11 rebounds, 7 assists — leading Miami to its 14th-straight win. He is getting a lot of props for his ongoing pregame dunks but it was this alley-oop in the first half, captured by Getty photographer Nick Laham, that had everyone talking. LeBron is seen flying through the air as the Knicks look helplessly below. Photo via: Nick Laham/Getty

  • Photo of the Day: The Crew Of NASA’s Apollo 1 Tragedy

    Apollo 1 was scheduled to be the first manned mission of the U.S. Apollo manned lunar landing program, with a target launch date of February 21, 1967. A cabin fire during a launch pad test on January 27, 46 years ago today, at Launch Pad 34 at Cape Canaveral killed all three crew members—Command Pilot Virgil “Gus” Grissom, Senior Pilot Edward H. White and PilotRoger B. Chaffee—and destroyed the Command Module. The photo above shows the astronauts at the launch pad 10 days before the fire and below the crew hanging out with the Command Module in a swimming pool while testing it’s water landing equipement.

  • Spectacular Photos Of A Burning Chicago Warehouse Encased In Ice [27 HQ Photos]

    Mother Nature has turned on the air conditioning in an epic way. Temperatures all across the U.S. have hit record lows and yesterday in Chicago it was colder than Juno, Alaska. Single digits in Chicago made fighting a massive abandoned warehouse fire difficult. Nearly 200 firefighters descended on the scene in Chicago’s Bridgeport neighborhood but found frozen hydrants and icy ladders. Incredibly nobody was injured but it was so cold that water sprayed onto the building froze almost instantly leaving the building encased in ice. 

  • Photo of the Day: Volcanic Lightning

    This photo from National Geographic shows the Eyjafjallajökull volcano’s ash plume, which roiled air travel in the spring of 2010. The lightening called a “dirty thunderstorm” occurs when rock and ice particles loosed by exploding magma collide in the atmosphere.

  • Photo of the Day: The Moon, Saturn, Mars, and Regulus Over A Santa Barbara, CA Wildfire

    On July 5th 2008, wandering planets, bright stars, and a young crescent Moon graced western skies after sunset. Arrayed along the solar system’s ecliptic plane, the three celestial beacons forming this skyscape’s eye-catching line-up with the Moon are Saturn (upper left), then Mars, and finally Regulus, alpha star of the constellation Leo. Of course planet Earth itself lies in the foreground, a scene dominated by the city lights of Santa Barbara, California. The smoky haze hanging over the city is from threatening wild fires still burning along the hill at the right. On Thursday evening, Saturn and Mars can be seen in a much closer pairing or conjunction, separated by only about 3/4 degree on the sky.

  • Photo of the Day: Milky Way From The Top Of Mauna Kea

    Mauna Kea is an inactive volcano on Hawaii with heights of roughly 13,000 feet. With its high altitude, dry environment, and stable airflow, Mauna Kea’s summit is one of the best sites in the world for astronomical observation. This photo, shot by Andrew Hara using long exposure techniques, gives us an incredible view of the Milky Way.

  • Photo of the Day: Giant Bluefin Tuna Sells For $1.76 Million

    This employee of Kiyomura Co. pushes a cart carrying a 489 lbs bluefin tuna outside Tsukiji fish market in Tokyo.  Kiyomura Co’s President Kiyoshi Kimura, who runs a chain of sushi restaurants, won the bid for the tuna with a record of 155.4 million yen ($1.76 million) at the fish market’s first tuna auction this year. This record price – nearly three times the previous high set last year – comes as environmentalists warned that stocks of the majestic, speedy fish are being depleted worldwide as demand for sushi rises.

  • Photo of the Day: Babe Ruth On The Red Sox

    93 years ago today the Red Sox announced they had sold their 25-year-old all-star pitcher Babe Ruth to the New York Yankees making Ruth’s transition from a pitcher to a power-hitting outfielder complete. To celebrate the occasion we take a look back at one of the all-time Red Sox greats. A man who was “less then a God, but more than a man. Like Hercules or something.” Babe Ruth’s legend is synonimous with the Yankees but before he wore pinstripes Babe Ruth was a Red Sox. We pulled together 30 rare photographs of Babe Ruth before he was a Yankee.

  • Photo of the Day: Milky Way Over Ancient Ghost Panel

    Long before Stonehenge was built, well before the Dead Sea Scrolls were written, ancient artists painted life-sized figures on canyon walls in Utah, USA – but why? Nobody is sure. The entire panel of figures, which dates back about 7,000 years, is called the Great Gallery and was found on the walls of Horseshoe Canyon in Canyonlands National Park. The humans who painted them likely hunted Mammoths. The unusual fuzziness of largest figure led to this mural section‘s informal designation as the Holy Ghost Panel, although the intended attribution and societal importance of the figure are really unknown. The above image was taken during a clear night in March. The oldest objects in the above image are not the pictographs, however, but the stars of our Milky Way Galaxy far in the background, some of which are billions of years old.

  • Photo of the Day: Rubber Duck in Sydney Harbour

    It’t bath time in one of Sydney’s most iconic locations. This 50-foot rubber duck is seen here floating in Sydney’s Darling Harbour, best known for it’s views of the Opera House, in preparation for a festival this weekend which organisers say will turn the harbour into a “giant bathtub”. “People will see it from the highway, will see it from the harbour, it’s five storeys high, and it’s just a very quirky way to say ‘the festival is on, please join us in the party’”, Sydney Festival director Lieven Bertels said. The rubber duck, designed by Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman, is made out of PVC material and took three weeks to make, according to Sydney Festival officials.

  • Photo of the Day: Camel Thorn Trees + Sand Dune in Namibia

    No this is not a painting. No this is not graphic design. This is a photograph. Anyone who sees this photograph (taken by Frans Lanting of National Geographic) thinks it’s photoshopped. In reality, the tinted orange background is produced by a soaring dune shined by the morning sun – a backdrop for the hulks of camel thorn trees in Namib-Naukluft Park. If you want to take a closer look of where this photo was taken check out this 360 degree view and a panorama.
