Science & Art



This absolutely beautiful illustration of a sunset on the Nile was found by one of our volunteers on Science Gossip. It was originally printed in The Intellectual Observer, a 19th century scientific journal. See what historic illustrations you can uncover today at

One thought on “Science & Art

  1. Is it a picture of an actual sunset? If so, what’s the date (I can guess the location). Red sunsers are sometimes markers of volcanic eruptions (and useful for studies of atmospheric aerosols).
