About This Category

This collection is of free images/photos/pictures, sounds, videos, etc from science, technology and nature, including birds, animals and plants, and some from the fields of chemistry, physics and biology. Some exhibits that could be in here may be found in collections with a more specific remit, such as "Flowers" and "Leaves and Greenery".

This is intended to serve, in part, as a teachers' and students' resource.

See also New Scientist for the latest news, The Register's science and tech stories, the EurekAlert!/AAAS Multimedia Gallery, and BioImages - Virtual Field-Guide (UK) for scholarly info.

Also, for attempts to catalogue all known species, see: the Encyclopedia of Life, and Barcode of Life.

I'm inclined to think that all I've captured here is thermal noise in the camera CCD during an 8s exposure!

Brian says: ``All photos taken with Sony MVC-FD7 Mavica from 43 Beresford Rd, altitude circa 18m, looking WNW at between 2140 and 2210 BST on 22 May 2002. Steeple is St Luke's Church, Gibbon Road, Kingston. Stars and planets that may be discernible are:

.                   Pollux        Castor                       .
.                        *        *                            .
.                                                              .
.                                                              .
.                             +    Jupiter                     .
.                                                              .
.                                                              .
.                                    +    Venus                .
.                                                              .
.                                          +     Mars          .

The brightest object in the photos is Mars or Venus, probably the latter as there was no reddish tint to it, IMHO; Jupiter, above it and to the left is less bright, though brighter than the stars, and visible only in some photos; I believe there is one image in which Pollux and Castor, the Gemini, are just visible above Jupiter. The 5 planets are all still well aligned on the ecliptic but Mercury is probably too close to the Sun to be seen, as is Saturn, at any rate through our murky horizon atmosphere.''
