Map of Restricted Fire Zones in Ontario

Note: A "Restricted Fire Zone" (RFZ) is an Order made by the Minister of Natural Resources, under the Forest Fires Prevention Act, that restricts the use of open fires in a specific area of the province. It is used when the fire hazard is extreme and/or when fire fighting resources are stretched to capacity. RFZ Orders are strictly enforced.

MOON PHASE MISCONCEPTION
"The most common incorrect reason given for the cause of the Moon's phases is that we are seeing the shadow of the Earth on the Moon! But this cannot be correct: When the Moon passes through the shadow of the Earth, we get a lunar eclipse. Anyone who has seen a lunar eclipse, though, might remember that the Moon actually passes through the Earth's shadow only rarely, so that can't be why the Moon has phases. The real reason for the Moon's phases depends on two things: The Moon is round, and the angle it makes with the Earth and Sun changes over its orbit."
