Observer
Nameamanda K
Experience Level4/5
RemarksI am in awe, what was viewed today in the atmosphere was like anything I've ever witnessed huge light across huge portion of sky. What did I see in medford mass today around 6 am? I watch the sky every day and night any chance I get I never miss an event I have never seen anything like this....side note unrelated there is a crater on the moon named Kircher after one of my oldest traceable ancestors who was one hell of an astronomer! I am very proud of my heritage and extremely proud to say my six year old needed absolutely zero provoking too be absolutely obsessed with space! We are so happy they are Re opening spacecamp just in time for another Kircher to make a mark :-)
