This is a rare meteorological phenomenon called a 'SKYPUNCH'. When people see these, they think it's the end of the world. Ice crystals form above the high-altitude cirro-cumulo-stratus clouds, then fall downward, punching a hole in the cloud cover.

The Moses Bridge is made to lie nearly flush with the water it bisects. Given its vulnerable exposure to the elements, the paneling which lines the bridge’s floors and walls is constructed of Accoya hardwood, a durable wood hybrid, and treated with a nontoxic, anti-fungal coating. Visitors venture across the marsh-like water in a manner similar to the biblical story to which the bridge’s name alludes–with the walls of the moat straddling their sides, threatening to cave in on top of them. Seen from the horizon, visitors pass right through the water, disappearing into the depths before reemerging moments later on the opposite side, where they scale a steel hill to–of course–a 17th century fort.

Audio slideshow: Giant cosmic eyes of the Atacama Desert

In the dry and empty lands of the Atacama Desert in Chile, several giant telescopes eye the sky to unlock mysteries of the Universe. They are run, solely or in partnership, by the European Southern Observatory (Eso), which this year marks its 50th anniversary. Eso astronomer Joe Liske talks about space and telescopes - and the organisation's plans for the future.

A definite must see!
