The internet is a treasure trove of information — anything you could ever possibly want to know is just one simple Google search away. But mostly, you're just looking for something you kind of know but can't quite remember — for instance, I just had to Google "that sitcom where the family had a butler" because I could not remember its name. But obviously I'd seen that show before, so when I found out it was called Mr. Belvadiere, I was pretty far from amazed. And that's a limit of the internet — we can only search for information we sort of already know. It's hard to search for "cool something that will make me feel alive." But don't worry about it, because we got you. These are some of the very best photos from Reddit's Be Amazed subreddit. Get ready, because your mind is about to be blown.

The first last-ditch effort I've ever seen that actually involves creating a ditch.

It's like pressing Cmmd+I in Photoshop on a picture of an Earth sunset.

The Mars Rover was able to capture a picture of the Mars sunset, which prompted Redditor the_icon32 to write: I’ve always loved that the Martian sunset is blue despite the planet being red, while our own blue planet has a red sunset. Kind of poetic.

A marked improvement.

Humans have been cooped up inside since COVID-19 brought our world to a standstill.

Thousands have now died from the virus and the spread of it doesn’t seem to be slowing down any time soon.

Lockdowns have been implemented all around the world...

Including Italy, Spain, the United Kingdom, and many parts of the United States.

It's safe to say that things are now deadly serious.

People all around the world are certainly feeling the strain and staying confined in their homes isn’t as easy as they imagined.

But staying indoors is potentially saving lives...

And it is also saving our planet.

The empty streets have made a staggering impact on the environment...

And this truly goes to show how the human race has severely damaged Planet Earth over the centuries.

Pollution levels are at an all-time low...

Since January, many parts of the world have seen a drastic drop in pollution levels since lockdowns were implemented.

Wuhan in China now has almost unrecognizable stats...

Wuhan is where the coronavirus initially started, and since the city’s lockdown back in January, nitrogen dioxide levels have dropped drastically.

And thanks to these drastic drops in pollution...

Mother Nature is thriving more than ever, with plants flourishing and wildlife making appearances in the most unlikely of places – including bottlenose dolphins recently swimming in the crystal clear canals of Venice in Italy that are usually overridden with tourists.

This is truly incredible to see...

And it goes to show how without us humans taking over the streets, the planet is slowly beginning to heal itself.

Endangered animals are also benefiting from these global lockdowns...

And nature has been allowed to take its course without any interruptions.

And now, something remarkable has happened.

Last week on March the 22nd, a shoreline in Paulista, a town in the north-eastern state of Pernambuco, Brazil, experienced the births of many endangered turtles.

This particular beach is a very popular tourist spot...

But in recent weeks, the beach has been left completely deserted after the state governor Paulo Câmara ordered a partial shutdown in the area, urging residents to stay indoors and restricting them from gathering on beaches.

The absence of tourists has made a wonderful difference...

Ninety-seven hawksbill sea turtles broke free from their shells and took their first cautious steps towards the Atlantic ocean, with almost no one around to witness the scene.

Hawksbill sea turtles are considered a critically endangered species.

The WWF explained how this species of turtle helps maintain the health of coral reefs as they remove prey such as sponges from the reef’s surface and they also provide better access for reef fish to feed.

It was a truly special moment.

The only people there were government workers, who managed to snap pictures of the baby turtles as they made their way down the beach.

The turtles had a little nudge, of course...

A statement from City Hall of Paulista says the hatching of the eggs and the first contact of the animals with the water was only possible thanks to monitoring work carried out by technicians of the Urban Sustainability Center.

Aside from being snatched by birds...

One of the biggest risks that face a baby turtle is being crushed by an unaware beachgoer, so these babies already have a stronger chance of thriving.

It's time to have a serious think about the way we treat our planet...

And these baby turtles are a prime example of how we need to be stepping back and letting Mother Nature take her toll. Make sure to keep scrolling to learn about the pollution decline in Italy since the country went into lockdown…
