1350-2 - April 17/18, 2001 aurora, taken from home in Alberta. looking south. Part of a series taken looking same direction as substorm hit and subsided, from Image #2 to #15, on Roll #1. (Roll #2 was second camera shooting Provia 100F with 28mm lens and 18mm lens.)

1350-105 - The spectacular field of Messier 8 and 20 emission and reflection nebulas in Sagittarius, with M8, aka the Lagoon Nebula below, and M20, the Trifid Nebula, above, all set in the rich starfields of the Milky Way. The diffuse nebula left of M8 is NGC 6559. Two globular clusters, NGC 6544 and NGC 6553, sit below and to the left (east) of M8. The Messier open cluster, M21, sits above M20.

1350-111 - The constellation of Scorpius with bright reddish Antares at top, with even brighter reddish Mars above it, and whie Saturn to the left of Antares. This shows all of Scorpius with Corona Australis and Ara below.
1350-34 - All of Scorpius, plus parts of Lupus and Ara regions of the southern Milky Way. This area was directly overhead when I took this at about 4:30 am local time on April 6, 2014 from near Coonabarabran, Australia. The head of Scorpius is at top his tail at bottom though you could turn this image any direction and it would be correct as seen in the sky at this latitude, depending on the time of night. But in portrait mode like this north is at top. Along the Milky Way are numerous nebulas, including the False Comet area, the Cat's Paw area, and the colourful nebulas around Antares at top. The dark Pipe Nebula is at left of frame.
1350-23 - Orion Nebula region with NGC1973-7. Stack of two 10-minute exposures + stack of 30s and 1min exposure for retaining bright core deail. Blended with Normal @ 85% but erasing all of short exposure layer except for core.
1348-131 - Transmission electron micrograph of influenza A virus, early passage. The swine influenza virus as all Influenza A virus, is a pleomorphic virus, which means that it can adopt different shapes according to the conditions. The virus of influenza can adopt
1116-49664 - Although rarely seen in the ocean by divers, the Sandbar shark (Carcharhinus plumbeus) is likely the most numerous of all shark species found in Hawaii. This individual was photographed at the Maui Ocean Center Aquarium, Maui, Hawii, United States of America

The caterpillars can strip a tree of all leaves but the Coast Live Oak trees usually recover in subsequent years.
