In the future, the lead will be totally banned as 6000 tons of lead is put into nature by hunters every year causing death of thousands of birds (here a mallard) eating lead balls.

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.) All images in this series (#1-02 thru 15) processed in Photoshop with nearly identical enhancements to contrast and colour. Brightness toned down for longer overexposed shots (early ones).
1350-43 - The 13.7-day-old Moon (a day before Full) with the south polar region tipped toward us in a favourable libration for viewing the southern regions and features. This was April 6, 2020. The large crater, Bailly, is on the southern limb, better seen here than at most similar phases, due to the favourable southern libration.
1350-44 - The 13.7-day-old Moon (a day before Full) with the south polar region tipped toward us in a favourable libration for viewing the southern regions and features. This was April 6, 2020. The large crater, Bailly, is on the southern limb, better seen here than at most similar phases, due to the favourable southern libration.
1350-4 - 9-day-old gibbous Moon, taken April 23, 2010, with Astro-Physics 130mm apo refractor, plus 2x Barlow for f/12 and 1600mm focal length. Canon 7D camera at ISO 100. Seeing poor -- this was the sharpest of the lot.
1350-2237 - Moorea, French Polynesia, Society Islands, South Pacific. On a surface of about 280m² with vanilla plants grown on artificial guardians. This type of culture helps protect it from the assaults of the sun, birds and all kinds of pests
1350-176 - The Dark Emu of aboriginal sky lore rising in a moonlit sky over the Tasman Sea from a beach near Lakes Entrance, Victoria, Australia, April 2, 2017. Lights from fishing boats dot the horizon out at sea. Illumination is from the waxing crescent Moon behind the camera to the north. This is looking southeast. Crux, the Southern Cross, is at top; the Pointer Stars are below.
1350-86 - The eroding formations of Dinosaur Provincial Park, Alberta, lit by the rising gibbous Moon, off camera at right, on April 21/22, 2019. This is looking north, with the stars of the northern sky pivoting around Polaris.
1350-318 - Polar Bear (Ursa maritimus) on sea ice off the sub-arctic coast of Hudson Bay, Churchill, Manitoba, Canada. Bears come to the coast of Hudson Bay in Fall waiting for the ice to freeze, and looking for a careless seal or dead whale to wash up. Global warming has shortened their winter so they are increasingly anxious as they wait for winter. While they wait, they engage in frequent wrestling matches to determine a mating hierarchy for the breeding season in March and April, and regularly check on the ice to see if it will carry them out to sea.
1350-172 - The centre of the Galaxy region in Sagittarius and Scorpius overhead in the wee hours of an April morning in Australia. At upper right are Alpha and Beta Centauri, while at lower left is Altair.
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.
