Eye on the Sky
While making model rockets, Planetary Society member Kirk Duckwall and his daughter Julianna, age 6, noticed the blast was making interesting designs on the launch pad. They came up with the creative idea of putting fresh paint on the pad to see what happened. They named the resulting image “Eye on the Sky.” Kirk emphasized that Julianna did all the hard work: “she helped pack the chute and put in the engine and most importantly launched and retrieved the rocket.”
