The photographs were taken fairly close to “Pangnirtung”, a community where Michael Davies has worked as a photographer for the past 10 years. Moreover the winter season in this remote northern town is extremely cold and dark, frequently with only a few hours of sunlight between sunrise and sunset. The spectacular photo shots were well planned, as Michel Davies tracked the temperature and took into account the angles, lighting, wind direction and speed in order to capture the superb photograph.

Exceptionally Rare Multicolored Bird Sighting in New York Attracts Crowds of Avian Enthusiasts

Well, nature is fully covered with beautiful things. No matter whatever things on planet earth, everything is beautiful and playing their role. Just like a particularly rare sightings of a male Painted Bunting in Brooklyn, New York's Prospect Park are ruffling the feathers of bird fanatics everywhere. The beautiful avian is naturally found around Florida and Texas, spending winters in Mexico; very very rarely does it come as far north as New York. In fact, according to data on record, this is the “first male Painted Bunting that’s ever had a recorded visit to Brooklyn” making sightings of this little guy about as common as catching a glimpse of a unicorn.

Therefore, this explains why the little fellow is causing hundreds of bird watchers and avian lovers to flock to the park, in hopes of a valuable look as his colorful plumage. It is most likely that a wind blew him up north, and he was tempted to stay due to the unusually warm November the city experienced. Therefore, with his vivid blue head and bright yellow shoulders that fade into a delicate green, the Painted Bunting is an extremely beautiful well deserving of the celebrity status he has gained in New York.

The World’s Largest Radio Telescope

 China begins testing world's largest radio telescope as construction of the £124 MILLION project enters final stage of completion, measuring 500 metres in diameter, being put through its paces with a dry run. The project name is called 'FAST' which stands for “Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical Telescope” the device is being constructed in Guizhou Province, south-west China. The project has taken more than five years to build world's biggest single-aperture radio telescope which covers above the size of 30 football pitches and is presently running on schedule. Scientists carried out the last stages with hopes for a September 2016 completion.

Moreover, Chinese authorities and engineers tested important component inside the gigantic telescope before it goes live indefinitely. Thusa, a mechanism that weighs more than 30,000 kilograms and is suspended 160 metres above the reflector dish, which is still unfinished, and the reflector dish will collect up signals from the whole universe. The project was first proposed in 2003, as body of telescope measuring 500 meters across. Therefore, the huge dish is made up of more than 4,500 mostly triangular panels and its side panels measure 11 metres long, the motion of these panels alter the collective shape of the antenna. The new antenna is adept of reflecting radio signals from the universe to a focal point, where the receiver dome sits.

The design of the telescope is not too much difficult to understand, it is very similar to a TV antenna: “FAST” is similar to any television antenna on a roof, but it is so much larger that. Some astronomers predict it will not be long before new discoveries are found because of the advanced technology of FAST and also expect it to find unidentified stars in the Milky Way other more distant thousands of galaxies in different environments in the local universe. After the completion of its detection, FAST is expected to maintain world-class status for the next 20-30 years. Moreover, the massive radio telescope will cost about 1.2 billion Yuan (£124 million), making it the biggest astronomy project China has ever had. The remoteness of the location also protects the surrounding landscape from any damage.
