Name Rachel F
Experience Level 3/5
Remarks I have seen many meteors before, but nothing as close as this one, especially one with that change in brilliant green colour. Absolutely amazing! I am a 3rd year biology student at the University of New Brunswick, but I have always been interested in astronomy. I am very excited to add this data to your collection.
