Changing Luminosity in Saturn’s Rings

Kudo to Crow Shannon, a co-author in a recent study published in Icarus about the changing luminosity of Saturn’s F ring. This exciting research story was recently reported in the LA Times. You can read the article here.

OK Shannon now it is time to go back to the chaos at Echo Base ;-)

A Vertical Sundial

The photo below shows a new take (for me) on the a sundial, mounted vertically on a building instead of horizontally. You can see from the shadow that is was around noon. Also indicated (I think) are zodiacal positioning, at least that’s what the symbols looked like. And to top it off look carefully and you can see that now only did a Crow snap the picture, a Crow posed in it!

Location: Murtenhof, Mürten, Switzerland

Newspaper Article About Crow Sham’s Trip to the Arctic

The article below recently appeared in a Sinhalese newspaper in Toronto about Crow Sham's trip to the arctic. Some of her great pictures were used in the article, which she tells has a few extrapolations by the author about Sham's background and the project. So if you can read it take the article with a grain of salt and if you can't enjoy some great pictures of the True North on a hot day (at least where this Crow perches!).
