McSweeney's reviews Good Night, Moon — Snerk.

Mammatus Clouds Over Olympic Valley — I've actually seen these in real life once, in Texas. It makes for a very weird sky.

Locomotive Breath: 1906 — A cool shot of Salem, MA from Shorpy. Mmm, trains.

Water, Water Everywhere — A new view of the solar system.

Top Five Myths about the Middle East Protests — Juan Cole is interesting and informative.
