'Unseen' museum exhibit to depict glow-in-the-dark creatures
NEW YORK (AP) – Feel as though you're in the dark when it comes to the underwater world?
New York's American Museum of Natural History is working on just the solution: a floor-to-ceiling installation depicting creatures that glow.
Photographers got a sneak peek on Thursday as one of the centerpieces was installed for an exhibition called "Unseen Oceans."
The intersection of nature and art is dubbed fishnado and displays hundreds of models of marine species that exhibit biofluorescence.
Black light eerily illuminates a scene of sea creatures that appear to swim overhead.
"Unseen Oceans" opens to the public in March.
German police rescue men tangled up with mannequin, toy car
BERLIN (AP) – Police in western Germany have freed two men who became entangled with a mannequin and a large, remote controlled car.
Officers were called after cries were heard from an apartment in the city of Mainz in the early hours of Saturday.
Police found the 58-year-old tenant and a 61-year-old visitor “hopelessly locked together” with the toy car and the mannequin – which was dressed in a knight’s costume.
Officers were able to free the men, who were too drunk to explain how their unfortunate predicament had come about.
According to a police statement, “the whole thing would have remained a funny episode” but the younger man was “more than impolite” and now faces a charge of insulting officers.
