Wow. Check out Fort McMurray, AB, Canada. Fascinating! 

Google has recently released a Google Earth feature called, "Timelapse," which is a good thing in a bad way - since it allows users to see how the globe has changed over the past 32 years. In other words, how humans have slowly modified their space on earth.

Combining over 5 million satellite images acquired over the past three decades by 5 different satellites, Timelapse lets viewers witness the growth of areas in their region.

The global, zoomable video is made from 33 cloud-free annual mosaics, one for each year from 1984 to 2016, which are made interactively explorable by Carnegie Mellon University CREATE Lab's Time Machine library, a technology for creating and viewing zoomable and pannable timelapses over space and time.

We added a Timelapse for a place closer to home; Toronto Pearson International Airport in Mississauga, which was quite interesting. But there were even more fascinating ones we have since discovered such as a lake in Bolivia vanishing or cities growing spectacularly in China and a few more!

Frankly, they wowed me too as I've never seen anything like them before.

Dracula simia or Monkey Orchids as they are more famously known, were the latest rage at an exhibition held at the Aquamarine Fukushima in Japan on Sunday and rightfully so as they pay special tribute to the upcoming Year of the Monkey.
