Observer
NameJulie M
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI have always enjoy watching the night sky. My grandfather used to build telescopes and was very interested in astronomy, although he died before I was born. When we were little, my parents would lay out a blanket and we would watch the night sky. I have never seen anything like this. It was the most beautiful thing that I have ever seen. Big, bright, and brilliant blue-green.
