What the hell. The fog at London’s Gatwick Airport was basically eating up any airplane that was trying to land on the runway. Some of the planes essentially disappeared into the unknown, never to be seen again (they were probably sent around). Others were able to land when the fog cleared up a bit but man, that’s a…
There’s not enough ice on the Earth’s polar caps to flood the entire planet should global warming turn it all into water. But sea levels will keep rising, and Danny MacRostie’s beautiful timelapse footage of fog rolling over California’s Mount Tamalpais feels like an eery sneak peek of where the world might be headed.
Last night, Pécs, the fifth largest city in Hungary, was completely engulfed in thick early-December fog running off the slopes of the nearby mountains.
New Horizons released a fresh batch of photographs from its collection today, and I’m in love all over again. Bask in the glory of a hazy dusk, then join me to dive into the awesome new science of weather on Pluto.
Fog-catching technologies have been used for centuries to gather moisture in deserts; we’ve even explored how they might mitigate the effects of drought. But the issue with introducing them into our cities is a matter of scale: Fog catchers need to be particularly large to catch a significant amount of water, and it’s…
I can’t decide what I think this stream of fog looks like more. Is it a waterfall of ghosts diving off a cliff? A river of angels crossing dimensions? A giant snake made of clouds creeping on the Earth? Because the simple explanation of fog trickling down a waterfall isn’t supernatural enough for me. It’s a beautiful…
The whole time I was watching this video of Marshall Miller base jumping into Lauterbrunnen in Switzerland, I was screaming inside. You see the entire jump from his perspective, as he looks down and around and can't see anything but fog and yet he still makes the jump. And as he's falling down, you still can't see…
Japanese visual design studio WOW made this stunning video showing rare images of Tokyo covered by a dense fog. That, combined with the relaxing music, the beautiful locations, and the calm pace at which the fog moves, transforms Tokyo into a gorgeous dreamlike city.
The fog of San Francisco is epic, a distinct character as iconic as Golden Gate Bridge. This is a visual ode to a single night of thick, flowing fog unlike anywhere else, and an undeniable reminder of the fluidity of air.
Using a combo of convex mirrors, choreographed projections, and strategic puffs of fog, the creative duo behind Seoul-based art and design studio Kimchi and Chips put together this brain-bending installation called Light Barrier. Stare too closely and you just might get transported to another dimension.
Today is the first day of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere! It's time for California to wave goodbye to winter fog, and start embracing the hazy days of spring and summer. From this January 17th photo, apparently they started a bit early this year.
From the sky, New York was cloud wonderland this morning.
California's running out of water. This year's record-breaking drought—coming after two already dry years—has the state scrambling for the liquid stuff. Plans to seed clouds for extra snowfall are already in place. But do we really require storm clouds for water? Why not use fog?
I'm supposed to know better. Fog is a phenomenon of weather. It's a low cloud hanging near the ground. It's shrouded moisture. It's not a haunting ghost. It's not from another planet. But why does this hypnotic time lapse of fog rolling through the Rocky Mountains from Richard Gottardo feel so supernatural? Or at…
Fog harvesting systems—giant nets that collect and funnel billions of tiny drops of water into a reservoir—are already in use in parts of the world where rainfall is rare. But researchers at MIT, working with experts from the Pontifical Catholic University in Santiago, Chile, have found a way to vastly improve those…
The luck of geography keeps San Francisco in the cool mist of ocean fog on even the hottest days in California. When it's broiling in the East Bay and baking in SoCal, people in San Francisco consider 70 degrees Fahrenheit to be way too hot. Here's why.
There is nothing more beautiful than watching the fog roll in over San Francisco. Often it looks like water flowing in slow motion. And now, in this mesmerizing time-lapse film, you can see just how similar the fog's motion really is to an airborne flood.
Here's a little five minute vacation for your brain. Check out these gorgeous images from Polish photographer Boguslaw Strempel, who rises early to catch the stunning morning scenes pictured here. Captured in the rolling mountains of Poland and the Czech Republic, jaw dropping doesn't begin to describe them.
Dubai-based photographer Gerald Donovan has sent us this spectacular video of the city completely engulfed by fog. It's extremely beautiful and eerie, with the Burj Khalifa and the rest of the buildings completely detached from the ground, apparently built on clouds.
