16 Photos That Can Broaden Your Horizons in a Couple of Seconds

If we could see with our own eyes the whale rocks, a weird fish from the mysterious depths of the ocean, the biggest geoglyph with an unknown creator, or maybe take a selfie in space just like astronaut Jessica Meir did, we’d certainly be happier.

We at Bright Side are always looking for unprecedented and little-known things to share with our readers. So here is our new compilation of unique and amazing things. At the end of the article, you’ll find a bonus that proves that the right perspective can change everything.

5. The Marree Man or Stuart’s Giant is one of the biggest geoglyphs on the planet. The figure is 1.7 miles tall. It was discovered in Australia in 1998. We still don’t know who created it or why.

6. This nut, which holds the main rotor to the mast of some helicopters, is called a “Jesus nut.”
