Discovery NotesThe soil discovered and collected on a sunny afternoon at 2:10 pm near the sidewalk between Ruane and the Science building complex. The temperature ranged in the low 70s of degrees of Fahrenheit. The soil sample collected had a mixed texture of moist and humid/damp and also contained pebbles.
Naming NotesMoonstar was not the first name that came into mind, but it is the one I chose because it was the one that stuck out to me the most and ended up being a very creative phage name. Moonstar inspires me as it reminds me of the sun and the moon metaphor.
