Discovery NotesSoil was very dry, and extremely exposed to sunlight. Collection site was located on the side of a hill, with plants growing around the area.
Naming NotesI named it after the Egyptian God of the Moon because the plaques would repeat looking different for different incubation periods, which I often thought about during the evening. I also extremely enjoy mythology, and thought it would be an appropriate name for a circle that resembled the moon.
