Discovery NotesThe dirt was gathered from the Merrimack Palmisano pond. Using a clean spoon, we dug about 1 foot into the ground where the dirt was moist. Sampling was approximately 3 inches away from the pond's border. About 3 scoops were gathered and placed directly into the conical tube. There are various
insects and animals surrounding this area including squirrels, ducks, and birds. Also, many students have been inside the pond recently for class studies. It was September 27, 2022, partly cloudy and 72F. Humidity was 43%.
Naming NotesNamed after the over-imaginative mind of one of the group members that found the phage. No one but them knows and quite honestly it would take a person who has gone insane to try and find out that secret from them.

Plaque NotesThe plaques were very turbid and around 0.1 cm in diameter. It is hard to distinguish some of the plaques since a taped label was used on the cover by accident. The edges were just as turbid and also difficult to distinguish.
