Ania Amador Just Painted the Coolest Looking Swimming Pool Ever

 

Artist Ania Amador recently completed her first ever swimming pool and the results are pretty amazing.

She says the clients are still in the process of properly sealing the pool but she promises to show pictures of it filled with water as soon as possible. The muralist and ‘live painter’ is currently based in Tallahassee, Florida.

Ania recently shared her project on reddit where she also answered a few questions about the project. Apparently her and her clients know the chlorine and chemicals in the pool will eventually degrade the painting and that they expect the mural to last maybe 3-5 years.

For those who are even more stunned by the beautiful backdrop and surroundings, the pool is located in a private residence in Sequim, Washington. To see more art from Ania, check out her work on Instagram and Facebook.

150 Million Year Old Dinosaur Footprints in France

 

In the Jura Mountains, outside the French village of Plagne, you will find a ~500ft/150m long stretch of dinosaur footprints dating back 150 million years.

After examination, scientists from the Laboratoire de Géologie de Lyon (CNRS / ENS de Lyon / Claude Bernard Lyon 1 University), the Laboratoire Magmas et Volcans (CNRS / Université Clermont Auvergne / Université Jean Monnet / IRD), and the Pterosaur Beach Museum concluded the tracks were left by a Sauropod measuring at least 115ft/35m long and weighing no less than 35 tonnes. Today it is recognized as the longest Sauropod dinosaur trackway ever discovered.

You can read more about this fascinating discovery at the CNRS.

Woman Sees Smoke, Starts Recording, and Captures an Eruption as It Happens

 

Boaters in the Mediterranean have captured the exact moment a volcano erupted on the Italian holiday island of Stromboli. The eruption occurred last Wednesday and tragically, flying debris from the blast killed a 35-year-old hiker from Sicily.

Around 1,000 tourists fled as the island was evacuated. Stromboli, which is approx. 13 sq. km, has a population of around 500 people and its economy is based almost entirely on tourism – much related to the volcano. Known as “The Lighthouse Of The Mediterranean”, it stands 3,000 ft above sea level, and is often busy with tour groups who can peer into its crater.

The boaters must have been far enough away, that the sound of the blast that would accompany such an eruption, had not reached them yet.
