Diapositive of photograph taken with the Kew Photoheliograph, 1860–62. This photograph of the Moon was taken by Warren De La Rue using the Kew photoheliograph, the first astronomical instrument with built-in photography. At Kew Observatory, the instrument was used to track changes in the appearance of the Sun and Moon.

As part of a project funded by the Southern California Earthquake Center, David Lynch (USGS), Kenneth Hudnut (USGS), David Dearborn (LLNL) and John Bayless (First Point Scientific Inc.) have made a number of low altitude photographic flights over the San Andreas Fault and parts of the Banning Fault. The goal is to obtain imagery with a spatial resolution of just a few centimeters on the ground; for planning field operations, to document the surface state of the fault before a major earthquake, and to provide many examples of fault landforms for education. (…) Together, they form a continuous record from the Salton Sea in Imperial County to central California, near California State Highway 198 in Monterey County. All photographs are in the public domain and can be used by anyone for any reason. Credit: David K. Lynch. (via EPOD)
“In 1929 a sizeable section of land in the southern tip of San Pedro, California began to unexplainably slip into the sea. The 600 block of Paseo Del Mar began moving seaward in 1929 and continued to slip until the mid 1930s. Movement was measured as high as 11 inches a day. Due to quick action, all but two of the houses on the seaward side of the street were moved before toppling into the sea. The eastern section of Point Fermin Park was lost and the entire area is very unstable, yet not moving at the present time.” - Urban Exploration Resource
