Weird alien-like fish spotted in the ocean’s twilight zone off the coast of California

I spy with my barreleye, a new Fresh from the Deep! During a dive with our education and outreach partner, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, the team came across a rare treat: a barreleye fish (Macropinna microstoma). 

MBARI’s remotely operated vehicles Ventana and Doc Ricketts have logged more than 5,600 successful dives and recorded more than 27,600 hours of video—yet we’ve only encountered this fish nine times! 
The barreleye lives in the ocean’s twilight zone, at depths of 600 to 800 meters (2,000 to 2,600 feet). Its eyes look upwards to spot its favorite prey—usually small crustaceans trapped in the tentacles of siphonophores—from the shadows they cast in the faint shimmer of sunlight from above. 

But how does this fish eat when its eyes point upward and its mouth points forward? 
MBARI researchers learned the barreleye can rotate its glowing green eyes beneath that dome (head) of transparent tissue. 

Aquarist Tommy Knowles and his team were aboard MBARI’s R/V Rachel Carson with our ROV Ventana to collect jellies and comb jellies for the Aquarium’s upcoming Into the Deep exhibition when they spotted this fascinating fish. The team stopped to marvel at Macropinna before it swam away.

China’s Yutu-2 rover spotted a strange cube-shaped object in Von Kármán crater on the dark side of the moon. Since the rover is about 80m away from the fuzzy object the rover team is planning to drive over and get a closer look at the object. Although they are talking about a cube-shaped object, the object seems to consist of two towers. The true nature of the object should be become clearer as the rover gets closer.    
Looking at the famous Da Vinci, “The Last Supper” picture, mirroring and inverting the picture in the correct way, inverting it right down the middle you get a hidden image that is unbelievable. What is revealed is absolutely Jaw Dropping! The question is, what did Da Vinci Know that he is trying to reveal?
