In this recurring column, we highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at Puerto Rico, Catalonia, an underwater photo contest, Gyda Henningsdottir and Robert Delpire.

  • NASA has published before-and-after images of Puerto Rico's nighttime lights are based on data captured by the Suomi NPP satellite. A team of scientists from NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center and Marshall Space Flight Center processed and corrected the Raw data to filter out stray light from the Moon, fires, airglow and any other sources that are not electric lights. Chilling, to say the least.
  • Alan Taylor presents 31 Photos From Catalonia's Independence Vote. "Of more than five million eligible Catalan voters, only 42 percent voted on Sunday, with 90 percent of the votes cast being pro-independence, according to Catalan officials," he writes.
  • Scuba Diving Magazine's 2017 Underwater Photo Contest Winners features winners in Wide-Angle, Macro, Conceptual and Compact Camera categories from more than 2,500 entries.
  • Mike Johnston highlights the work of Icelandic photographer Gyda Henningsdottir.
  • French publisher Robert Delpire died late last month in Paris. Delpire, who had championed the work of Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Frank and Josef Koudelka, redefined the photo book, paying particular attention to sequencing. He was also the director of the Centre de National de la Photographie for over a decade after it opened in 1982.
