Aurora over Antarctica, satellite image Featured Print

Aurora over Antarctica, satellite image

Aurora over Antarctica, ultraviolet satellite image. Australia is at upper left. This is the aurora australis (green ring), the southern lights display. It is caused by interactions between charged particles from the Sun (the solar wind) and gas atoms and molecules about 100 kilometres above the Earth. On reaching Earth, the charged particles are drawn by Earth's magnetic field to the poles, where they collide with gas atoms and molecules, causing them to emit light. This display, on 11 September 2005, was caused by a large solar flare. The aurora image was obtained by NASA's IMAGE satellite, which carried out a five year study of Earth's magnetic field.

The Palazzo Pazzi (Palazzo della Congiura or Palazzo Pazzi-Quaratesi

The Palazzo Pazzi (Palazzo della Congiura or Palazzo Pazzi-Quaratesi) - a Renaissance-style palace in Florence, Tuscany, Italy. The architect of the palace was Giuliano da Maiano, though it has in the past been attributed to Michelozzo di Bartolomeo or Filippo Brunelleschi (as ascribed on this postcard). The Pazzi arms (top left) are attributed to Donatello. The Scoppio del Carro ("Explosion of the Cart") is also shown (lower left) - a folk tradition of Florence. On Easter Sunday, a cart, packed full of fireworks and other pyrotechnics, is lit and provides a historic spectacle in the civic life of the city. Date: 1902

The British Royal Family's Golden State Coach Featured Print

The British Royal Family's Golden State Coach

The British Royal Family's Golden State Coach, used for royal coronations decorated with paintings by Giovanni Cipriani including the royal arms on the upper back panel, ornamented with the Order of St. George and the floral emblems of Great Britain. Commissioned in 1760, it was built in the London workshops of Samuel Butler. As the coach is suspended from braces, it lacks more modern comfort. The coach is managed by 4 postilions, 9 walking grooms (one of whom walks behind the coach), 6 footmen, and 4 Yeoman of the Guard carrying their long partisans. Eight of the grooms walk beside the horses. The more ornately-dressed footmen (pictured here) walk beside the body of the coach. Date: circa 1930s
