L♥ve Locks Around The World (Interactive Map)


My goal is to document as many known ‘Love Lock’ locations Around the World. Do you know of any more ‘Love Lock’ locations that are not on the map yet, please share them in the comment section so i can add them to the map! 🙂

A ‘love lock’ or ‘love padlock’ is a padlock which lovers, sweethearts or individuals lock to a bridge, fence, gate, or similar public fixture to symbolize their love. Typically their names or initials are inscribed on the padlock and the key is thrown away to symbolize unbreakable love.
Since the 2000s, love locks have proliferated at an increasing number of locations worldwide. They are now mostly treated by municipal authorities as litter or vandalism due to the damage they can cause, public safety, and the cost of removing the padlocks. However, there are authorities who embrace them and who use them as fundraising projects, art or tourism attractions.
So please remember before you hang your ‘Love Lock’ somewhere that you have permission to do so!

Super Moon 14 Nov 2016: Closest Full Moon to Earth Since 1948 and until 2034


The Supermoon on November 14, 2016, will be the closest a Full Moon has been to Earth since January 26, 1948. The next time a Full Moon is even closer to Earth will be on November 25, 2034 (dates based on UTC time).

The best time to view the Super Moon is at Moonrise, weather permitting, of course. At this time, illusion mixes with reality to make a low-hanging Moon look unnaturally large when compared to foreground objects.

“Spooky” The Halloween Space Rock Bears An Eerie Resemblance To A Skull


Asteroid 2015 TB145, which has been nicknamed “Spooky” and the “Great Pumpkin” by some, was first discovered by astronomers with the University of Hawaii’s PANSTARRS-1 survey on Oct. 10. According to NASA, the asteroid is about the size of a football stadium, and could be up to 2,130 feet across. The asteroid poses no danger to Earth, and has missed our planet on Halloween (Oct. 31) at 1 p.m. EDT (10 a.m. PDT, 17:00 UTC), by a distance of 300,000 miles (480,000 kilometers), which is just beyond the orbit of the moon.

The large space rock is most likely a dead comet that, fittingly, bears an eerie resemblance to a skull.

The Mysterious ‘Rock Face’ on Reeks Broken Island


A mysterious, “large” face on the cliffside of an island in the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve has recently been re-discovered by a man who has been searching for the face for over two years. Hidden on Reeks island on Canada’s west coast, a First Nation community is now looking in to the significance of the giant face found on the mountain, to discover whether the visage, surrounded by a rugged shoreline and rough waters, is a natural phenomenon, or the product of ancient civilisation.
The ‘Rock Face’ could be an example of pareidolia or may be a carved face on a rock from an ancient and long-forgotten society, but for those of us who love a good old fashioned mystery it’s a treat.
