November 26:  Dr. Joseph Varon comforts a patient on Thanksgiving in the Covid-19 intensive care unit at the United Memorial Medical Center in Houston. Texas was the first state to pass 1 million coronavirus cases, according to data from Johns Hopkins University. "As I'm going inside my Covid unit I see that this elderly patient is out of his bed and trying to get out of the room and he's crying,” Varon said. “So, I get close to him and I tell him 'why are you crying' and the man says, 'I want to be with my wife.’ ” Varon said the man would not be able to see his wife until he tested negative on his swabs and could be discharged. Go Nakamura/Getty Images


November 27:  A metal monolith sits in a remote area of red rock in southeastern Utah. Officers from the Utah Department of Public Safety’s Aero Bureau were flying by helicopter, helping the Division of Wildlife Resources count bighorn sheep, when they spotted the mysterious monolith that seemed right out of the film “2001: A Space Odyssey.” Pilot Bret Hutchings believed it was most likely placed there by an artist. Days later, similar monoliths were found in California and Romania. Terrance Siemon/AP
