nbcnews A boat is dwarfed by a tall, bleached "bathtub ring" on the rocky banks of Lake Powell in Page, Arizona. As severe drought grips parts of the western United States, a below average flow of water is expected to enter Lake Powell and Lake Mead, the two biggest reservoirs of the Colorado River Basin. Lake Powell is currently at 45 percent of capacity and is at risk of seeing its surface elevation fall below 1,075 feet above sea level by September, which would be the lowest level on record. The Colorado River Basin supplies water to 40 million people in seven western states. Click the link in our profile to see more images from Lake Powell.

  •   defuturo The only reason why she got away with murder is the incompetence of the police in Italy. They mishandled the evidence and breeched international law several times during her interrogation. Obviously the defence milked these weaknesses until she was acquitted. I agree with Alan Dershowitz on this case. The evidence was sufficient and she should have been extradited following a conviction. I guess justice can be undermined for political gain sometimes. 3w

nbcnews This visible-light image, captured on Jan. 24 by the Hubble Space Telescope's Wide Field Camera 3, shows three of Jupiter's largest moons backdropped by the giant planet's banded face. Europa has entered the frame at lower left with slower-moving Callisto above and to the right of it. The moon Io, which orbits significantly closer to Jupiter, is approaching the eastern limb of the planet. A three-moon transit like this one is visible from Earth only once or twice a decade, astronomers say.

nbcnews A former circus lion named "King" lays sedated as a veterinarian performs dental surgery, inside a temporary refuge for the lion on the outskirts of #Lima, #Peru. Vets from the Animal Defenders International (ADI) are operating on lions and monkeys rescued from traveling circuses in Peru and Bolivia. According to the vets, King was removed from a circus in Nov. 2014 and is unable to chew his food properly because most of his teeth had been pulled out, or partially pulled out by his circus owners. It is illegal to use wild animals in circuses in Peru.
