First week

The observatory building at night.

My first week at the Observatory is almost through and I still can’t believe I am here. Waking up on top of a 6,288 ft. mountain everyday is kind of surreal. The views of the Presidential Mountains, when not in the fog, are absolutely beautiful and the weather has already been pretty exciting, with a thunderstorm on Friday. Everyone here is great. They have been a lot of fun and have been helpful through the intern training process.

Being the fall intern, I am anticipating all types of awesome weather as the seasons change. I can’t wait for this extreme weather everyone keeps talking about!

The next couple months should be a great adventure and I am very excited for all that is to come!
