In the wee hours of Wednesday morning, North America, Australia, western Asia and most of the Pacific Ocean will be treated to a full lunar eclipse in which the moon takes on a reddish hue as it passes through the Earth’s shadow.
We borrowed this moon image from The moon hoax, or a discovery that the moon has a vast population of human beings, an 1859 book that compiled the original six articles published in The Sun in 1835. A century before H.G. Wells’s The War of the Worlds induced panic about a Martian invasion of New Jersey, these six articles helped grow The Sun’s readership dramatically and establish it as a major New York newspaper. Read more about the fascinating history of The Great Moon Hoax on our blog. Rather listen to a podcast? The memory palace has an episode that might be of interest.

Glorious Biology GIFs Visualize The Secrets To Animal Flight

Seattle-based artist and recent University of Washington graduate Eleanor Lutz has decided to spend a year combining her two passions: design and biology. To bring the two seemingly disparate fields together, she started her own infographic design project, a science illustration blog chock full of GIF deconstructions of human and animal behavior. Combining Photoshop, Illustrator, and a Wacom drawing tablet, Lutz has so far completed four installments of her animated infographic series, and shared them on Tabletop Whale, her project blog.

Lutz’s first blog post, entitled “A Visual Compendium of Glowing Creatures”, was published on July 21st of this year. 200 sources and a 468 page textbook later, Lutz’s final product, a poster of bioluminescent organisms, glows with detailed illustrations and biological profiles of each organism. This past month, Lutz followed up her debut with 25 GIF infographic, A User’s Guide to the Human Body: The Muscle Edition, and an animated chart of 42 North American butterflies. It’s a glorious marriage of science and art, and we can’t wait to see what Lutz will illustrate next.
