Observer
NameJeff B
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI don't have time to watch the sky for meteor showers like I used to, however, I have been learning about the universe since I was a young boy. Daily indulge myself with new technology news and scientific research from NASA / SpaceX and CERN. Also, I have a good understanding of quantum mechanics, gravitational lensing and other effects caused by laws of physics and physics yet understood. Email me and I will send you a picture of my exact vantage point. It was the closest fireball I have seen continue to burn so close to the horizon.Thanks,Jeff B.
