First Internship Comment

Beautiful Summit View on Friday 6/5
It has been a gorgeous stretch of weather over the past couple of days. Clear skies and visibility of over 80 miles at times has made for some breath-taking views in every direction. This morning, we were treated to an undercast below the summit. I must say that I am anxiously awaiting some more active weather, but I will absolutely take the views (like the one here) and picturesque sunsets for now.
This is my fourth day interning for the Mount Washington Observatory and it has been amazing thus far. I have accomplished a number of tasks over the last few days. The calm weather has given the staff a chance to work on outside maintenance on the Cosmo Shack. I have also spent time entering observational data and shadowing the wonderful observers on their hourly observations. Last but not least, I have also spent some time aiding our wonderful staff down in the Mount Washington Observatory Museum.
I am greatly looking forward to the summer here at the Mount Washington Observatory. Until next time!
