Great crested newt Featured August Print

Great crested newt

Great crested newt (Triturus cristata) underwater. It is named for the large crest that develops on the backs of the males in the mating season. The juveniles lack the dark-spotted orange bellies of the adults. This newt can reach 11-18 centimetres in length, feeding at night on invertebrates in and around water. It hibernates in the winter. The great crested newt is found in northern Europe, and is protected under European law

Optical image of the star Sirius Featured August Print

Optical image of the star Sirius

Sirius. Optical image of the star Sirius, the brightest star in the sky, with the exception of the Sun. North is at top. Sirius (Alpha Canis Majoris), also known as the Dog Star, lies in the constellation of Canis Major. It has a visual magnitude of -1.46. It is itself a fairly average star, however, and only appears so bright due to its proximity to Earth. It lies around 8.6 light years away, making it the 9th nearest star to the Sun. Sirius is actually a double star. It has a very faint companion, Sirius B, which is a white dwarf. Sirius itself has the spectral class A1, meaning it is a very hot white star, with a surface temperature around 10, 000 degrees Celsius
