Be sure to use your EYES first, app second. Time Frame: 1 clear night-BUT you may have to go out at a few times! You can begin at twilight, however it is not dark until an hour after sunset. Location: : Choose a clear night-no clouds. Plan accordingly-clouds happen. Choose a dark location, with minimal street lights. Choose a location free of as many horizon obstructions as possible. This does not have to be far from your house, but must be somewhere you can go out a few times. NOTE: not everything is out at the same time!

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
