ABC Wednesday - F

F is for Feather

New species of giant bird leaves feather on Tarn Hows? Only in my imagination.

This is Caroline Dalton's contribution to the FRED art invasion last October. Unfortunately instead of floating ethereally about the tarn it is looking a bit worse for wear after a week of wind and rain and then the arrival of a "complex, active frontal system" which treated us to over 2 inches + of rain in 24 hours. These pictures were taken on the following day which was a beautiful sunny one.

Other famous feathers? The falcon's feather that Dave Scott of Apollo 15 took to the moon in 1971 to demonstrate gravity. Here he is doing the experiment

I often heard of the internet rumor that the landing of moon is a fake. Here you show a perfect experiment that it is real!!!
