Every week, the photos sent in by our field staff remind us that the planet is an incredible place, and what's more, we will never run out of new things to discover. Two weeks ago off the coast of South Georgia Island, naturalist Erin Britton captured a photo of a stygiomedusa gigantea, or giant phantom jellyfish—a species so rare and elusive that this is only the 110th specimen ever spotted in the wild.
