  • Bright fuzzball: Although astronomers got little advance warning about Hyakutake -- Japanese photoengraver Yuji Hyakutake spied it on Jan. 30 -- they have scrambled to turn any telescope they can toward the surprise visitor.

    The Night Visitor

  • Jackson grew up several miles up the coast from Wellington in the town of Pukerua Bay - the meadows, woodlands and seascapes that later stood in for Middle-earth were all visible from his front door - and, while his parents wanted him to be an architect, they supported their Ray Harryhausen-besotted, stop-motion-splicing son when he left school at 16, getting a job as a photoengraver on the Wellington Evening Post while baking latex masks and synthesising fake blood in the family kitchen in preparation for Bad Taste.
