Andromedid meteor shower Featured 2 Dec 2002 Print

Andromedid meteor shower

Andromedid meteor shower. Coloured historical artwork of the Andromedid or Bielid meteor shower of 27 November 1872. Meteor showers, or shooting stars, are dust grains that enter the Earth's atmosphere and glow as they are heated up by air resistance. Although today's Andromedids are very weak (less than three meteors per hour) the shower of 1872 displayed several thousand per hour. The showers occur when the Earth crosses the orbit of debris produced by the comet Biela. Titled The Zodiac Lights (La Luce Zodiacle), from the Modern Illustrated Encyclopaedia (Enciclopedia Moderna Illustrata), published in Milan, Italy, in 1904


Judas tree flower, SEM Featured 2 Dec 2002 Print

Judas tree flower, SEM

Judas tree flower. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the reproductive parts of the flower of the Judas tree, or redbud (Cercis sp.). The male stamens comprise a long filament (green) bearing a brown anther. The anthers produce the flower's pollen, the male sex cells. The female carpel comprises a long, thick style bearing a small stigma (pale, centre right). Pollination occurs when pollen lands on the stigma. It then burrows down through the style to reach the female sex cell (ovum) in the ovary (not seen) at the base of the style. Magnification unknown
