Indoor rainbows and spotty seals: 22 amazing images in science from June 2021
The best images in science from around the world this June.
June has positively flown past, with over half of 2021 already over. And while we still wait for an end to the global COVID-19 pandemic, life has had to carry on as best it can. Thankfully, the world of science never fails to give us great images to share.
This month, we've had partial eclipses, supermoons, volcanic eruptions and a lot of sea snot in Turkey.
We've also had our fair share of extreme weather events, with California and other states in the Southwest of the USA experiencing a historic drought.
We bring you the best images in science that June had to offer...
