The Earth Twins in the Show’s style! 

The next Avatar-er…Avatars? Twins! Jiao (long hair) and Jiaying (short hair) with their mom!

Jiao bends Fire and Water. Jiaying bends Earth and Air. (Why one isn’t Fire/Earth and the other Water/Air? I wanted their main problem to be learning how to find Peace with Themselves instead of with each other) 

They are 13 years old and only have Korra for insight… oh god. 

Equinox from space

March 20th was the Equinox, the day when the sun is directly above the equator and where the North and South Pole both receive equal amounts of sunlight. For the next 6 months the South Pole will be in shadow and the North Pole will receive sunlight.

The Japanese Himawari-8 weather satellite captured this gif/video view of the Earth moving into night over the Pacific Ocean yesterday; this is just about as closely balanced as the planet can get, with both poles receiving just about the same amount of light.
