Terra the Terrestrial Tiger

HI! I am the roaring yet cuddly mascot for Yancey from the spring of 2011. My name is Terra the Terrestrial Tiger.  I think the Earth is the perfect place to watch the Universe unfold and love to find out about anything in astronomy. I have been lucky enough to travel to some of the best viewing points in the USA, even to the Green Bank Telescope during my very first astronomy club!

Aspiration: to be a lifelong astronomer
Favorite DSBK Lesson: Invisible Light- especially the IR camera. All the light we have here on Earth but can’t see with our eyes! See my beautiful earrings that change color in sunlight?
Favorite Constellation: Hercules
Favorite Galaxy: the Milky Way, where our Earth is, of course!
One thing I bet you didn’t know: Not only do I love dark skies, my second favorite dark places are caves with stalagmites and stalactites.
