Issue Four

Hello again!

Sunshine and snow have been visiting here in the south of the island, and the pear trees are starting to break buds. In a few days we’ll be balanced on the equinox: twelve hours of day and night.

We’ve been scouting for a good field site as a venue for outreach science classes in the near future. If you’ve got any ideas of a good bush setting with a variety of terrain types, relatively close to Hobart, send us a note and let us know.

There are some new perspectives for you in this issue: the magnetism of a rare mountain gum tree, a detailed view of a uniquely Tasmanian glass linked to a celestial impact, and a magnetic search of for articles in an abandoned town.

Then, we’ll trek back into the Tasmanian Southwest and see the second set of photos from the Folded Range and the White Mountains.

If you see something you like, feel free to share it with your networks. And, if you’ve got a story to tell, via words, sounds, or pixels, send it our way!

Until next time.
