  • The Supreme Court allowed President Trump’s transgender military ban to go into effect Tuesday, dealing a blow to LGBTQ activists who call the ban cruel and irrational. The policy, which was announced by the President on Twitter in 2017, and later officially released in 2018, blocks people who have been diagnosed with “gender dysphoria” from serving, with limited exceptions. It also specifies that individuals without the condition can serve, but only if they do so according to the sex they were assigned at birth. (📸: John Moore/Getty Images)

  • Did you miss last night’s incredible moon? 🌕 This timelapse shows you the different stages of a rare lunar eclipse known as a super blood wolf moon. But what exactly is it? The event takes place when a lunar eclipse occurs at the same time as a supermoon, when the moon is full, closest to Earth in orbit and on the opposite side of Earth from the sun. Sunlight passing through Earth's atmosphere turns the moon a dramatic red color. So where does the "wolf" part come in? It is the traditional name given to full moons in January -- inspired by the hungry animals that howled outside of villages long ago, according to the Old Farmer's Almanac. #timelapse #superbloodwolfmoon #moon #space #astronomy #eclipse

  • No, you’re not seeing things - this super blood moon was photographed in the sky above Los Angeles, California. The rare event takes place when a lunar eclipse occurs at the same time as a supermoon, when the moon is full, closest to Earth in orbit and on the opposite side of Earth from the sun. Sunlight passing through Earth's atmosphere turns the moon a dramatic red color. This will be the last total lunar eclipse visible in the United States until 2022.

  • Italy’s first-ever Mormon temple opened this week—on the Vatican’s doorstep. The church is 40,000 square feet, made of Italian marble and granite, and has sparkling Swarvoski crystal and Murano glass chandeliers set in 24-carat gold. Elder Ronald Rasband, one of 12 “Apostles” who govern the Mormon Church, says the choice of Rome is based on its history as the center of Christianity. Rasband says Mormon leaders discussed their plans with the Vatican. (📸: LDS Church)

  • Ongeim’l Tketau Jellyfish Lake is now open to visitors after being closed for two years to allow its diminishing golden jellyfish population to recover.

  • A nonprofit called the “Billion Oyster Project” is working to clean New York Harbor’s murky, polluted water by rebuilding oyster reefs in the waters around the city. Oysters are natural purifiers: A single adult oyster can clean about 50 gallons of water per day. The reefs can provide a habitat for other marine life and help protect the city’s shores against storm surge during rough weather. Above, a worker places oysters in the harbor in Aug. 2018.
