Hen pheasant feathers Featured 18 Feb 2005 Print

Hen pheasant feathers

Hen pheasant feathers (Phasianus colchicus). The plumage of the female (hen) pheasant is a mottled brown, which serves as camouflage in the woodland and scrub in which the bird lives. The male, by comparison, has bold bronze feathers with an iridescent green head and bright red eye patches. The bold colours of the males are used to attract females and intimidate rival males. Pheasants originated in Asia but have been introduced throughout the world for game and their meat

Artwork of Hubble Space Telescope and Eagle Nebula

Hubble Space Telescope. Artwork of the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) in Earth orbit, facing the giant gas and dust pillars of the Eagle Nebula (M16). This spectacular nebula image of star formation was taken by the HST. Reflected on the telescope is Earth's blue atmosphere, water and clouds. Two solar arrays (rectangular) that power the HST are seen. The telescope has a 2.4 metre primary mirror and makes observations at ultra- violet, optical and infrared wavelengths. Unaffec- ted by the Earth's atmosphere, HST images are 10 times more detailed than from ground telescopes. Fingers emerging from pillars of the Nebula contain dense regions which are stars being born

Anemometer Featured 18 Feb 2005 Print

Anemometer

Dines anemometer in a weather hut during winter. An anemometer records wind speed and direction, but this one also records variations in wind force, and the strength and frequency of gusts. The part of the anemometer exposed to the wind is on top of the hut (not seen) and is connected to this recording apparatus by the thin rod at upper right. The black dial gives wind directions in degrees. The carefully weighted recording arms have several pens to trace measurements on the paper on the slowly rotating cylinder (centre left). The single upper pen records wind velocity, and the lower (twin) pens record wind direction. This is a Dines Pressure Tube Anemograph Mark II, manufactured by Munro
