50 Photos Of Things Your Rarely Get To See

Published 5 years ago

Some may be so small they require a microscope to see, while may appear and disappear so quickly, you’d be lucky to even catch a glimpse. Lucky for us, some people actually managed to capture some of these rare things and occurrences, and share them with the world.

Weirdly colored animals, mutant flowers and even curly horses – see the photos of things we rarely get to see in the gallery below! Also, don’t forget to check out our previous posts here and here!

NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft captured this high-resolution enhanced color view of Pluto on July 14, 2015. The image combines blue, red and infrared images taken by the Ralph/Multispectral Visual Imaging Camera (MVIC). Pluto’s surface sports a remarkable range of subtle colors, enhanced in this view to a rainbow of pale blues, yellows, oranges, and deep reds. Many landforms have their own distinct colors, telling a complex geological and climatological story that scientists have only just begun to decode. The image resolves details and colors on scales as small as 0.8 miles (1.3 kilometers).

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
