Discovery NotesPicked most likely from avian source, in a public park (Sunset Park) with a lot of geese, and ducks. Picked out 1/2 from topsoil in a green poo tinted soil near the root of a tree.
Naming NotesThe name comes from the plaque counting process, where we would lift the plates up towards the lights. Reminding me of the a star chart and how people before probably looked a star charts in the same manner discovering new constellations. Same techniques living on in different times, giving the phage a stellar sounding name.
