Observation Log: 1

I’ve been trying to keep a record of my observations on sheets of paper. But unfortunately, these papers sometimes go missing.
So now onwards, I’ll be recording my observation on this blog (sketching will still be on paper though 😉 ).
But besides my making sure they’re all in one place, you’ll get to read them too!
They’re pretty boring right now (viewing conditions from home are far from good)…but I’ll be heading off to Boston in fall, and I’m keeping my fingers crossed for some clearer skies!
