    Surreal. And I'm surprised that such a large river can exist on an island that's so small.

    Planetarium watch, by Van Cleef and Arples.

    Watches are for telling time, but this planetarium watch goes further by following the orbits of planets in our solar system. Mercury through Saturn move around the dial tracing the real-time motion of planets around the sun while a comet marks the more practical time of day.


    A few years ago, Van Cleef & Arpels built a day-night watch where the sun and moon alternate over 24 hours for dominance on the watch face. It's nice enough, but not spectacular. Then they built a constellation watch (with matching cufflinks!), a wrist-sized skymap as seen from Paris. More attractive, but still not enough to provoke unmitigated yearning.

    Then in 2014 they came out with Midnight Planétarium, a dynamic replica of our solar system containing all six planets that are naked-eye visible from Earth, each orbiting in true-time around the tiny rose gold sun. Mercury will whip around in just 88 days, while Saturn will labour for 29 years to make one orbit. The owner can set a "lucky day" for the Earth to align with a star engraved on the enclosing sapphire face once per year.


    For more mundane time-telling, the pink shooting star around the outer orbit tracks out 24 hours in a day. Apparently knowing time to the nearest 15 minute interval is good enough when you can afford a watch this fancy.

    Elegant and expensive: $245,000 for the plain version, and up to $330,000.

    Pic released by Spielberg with the Triceratops he slaughtered.

    Went viral, heads exploded, till someone mentioned the Triceratops died off about 68 million years ago.

    'Skypunch.' A rare meteorological phenomenon where ice crystals form above high altitude clouds, then fall downward, punching a hole in the cloud cover.

    The animal shots are as amazing as are the milky way skies thank you.

    I got the sack because
    I took a couple of days off.

    Water condensing as a result of low pressure while breaking the sound barrier at 1,234 km/h.

    Pic was taken from plane flying at just under the speed of sound.
