Observer
NameMatthew S
Experience Level4/5
RemarksIf I knew more about observing these, I would be able to find this one. Often times, there is no way of knowing for certain how far away the object is, but this one was directly in the center of the valley here in Pocatello. This is part of the reason I am going into geology...to be able to study these beautiful things!!
