Today I spent the morning just researching planetary nebulae and astronomy in general. It was extremely hot (almost 100 degrees!) when we went to coffee so I got a mango-strawberry smoothie. For lunch we ate outside in some shade so we wouldn't melt. In the afternoon, I downloaded ImageJ because Rudy says I will need to use it in the future. Unfortunately he is leaving for the next two weeks so I'm going to be kinda on my own for a little. However, he said Dan and Joel will help/instruct me while he is gone. My task now is to explore ImageJ and become more comfortable and fluent with the program. So far I've taken a few tutorials online, but I have a lot more learning to do!
