Hannah and Dan are in my astro techniques course this semester. I guess they were just frustrated waiting for the clouds to clear all through February. So they took observations into their own hands. Remembering a story from Dr. Pakey, they decided to build a cloud chamber late last Thursday after class to detect cosmic rays.
