A 10-year-old pet goldfish named George prepares to go under the knife to remove a life-threatening tumour at the Lort Smith Animal Hospital in Melbourne, Australia.

The 45-minute long procedure was performed by vet Tristan Rich who described the operation as ‘fiddly’. The fish was sedated by water laced with anaesthetic and once the tumour was removed the wound was sealed with tissue glue followed by antibiotics and painkillers.

The aurora at the southern pole, in all its psychedelic glory. From v.14 of The Works of Jules Verne, this illustration is for his story The Sphinx of Ice, which starts on p. 263. (also known as An Antarctic Mystery.)

We hear you might be able to catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights from the northern tier of the US tonight. Don’t expect them to be quite as showy as this image of the aurora australis we posted last year, however…
See NASA’s Aurora page for more info. NOAA’s Space Weather Prediction Center might have the scoop, too.
Happy viewing!

Here’s a preview of the new zine I’ll be selling at SPX!

Common Curses & Blessings is a 2-in-1 mini-zine about the most mundane and insignificant things the universe throws at you. They probably shouldn’t even have an impact on your day, but they totally do.

In response to the September 11 tragedies, twenty Buddhist monks from the Drepung Loseling Monastery constructed a sand mandala (sacred painting) at the Sackler in 2002. This seven-foot-square mandala, one of the largest ever created in the West, was offered for the healing and protection of America.

Learn more about this project and Tibetan mandalas.
