Almost every night, you can find the summary and links of all the blog posts published that day at the Scientific American blog network. But once a month, you are given a special treat – a video in which Carin Bondar of the Psi Vid blog highlights a few of the most interesting blog posts of the previous month. The July edition of the video highlights the following:

Exoplanet colour confirmed for first time: it’s blue, but not pale — and nothing like Earth by Kelly Oakes at Basic Space

Eye-Tracking Reveals What’s Hot, What’s Not from the Peahen’s Point of View by Robin Anne Smith at Guest Blog.

What the N.S.A. Knows About You by Kalliopi Monoyios at Symbiartic.

Scientific American was well represented at the The 63rd Annual Lindau Meeting with editor Fred Guterl, freelancer Kathleen Raven, and blogger Ashutosh Jogalekar. In the video Ashutosh reports how it felt to be there.
