Observations on a Cookie

Be sure you have cookies turned on in your browser! (grin)

Careful observation is a very important part of science. Ornithologists learn to identify birds from a quick glimpse as they fly through the trees. Meteorologists learn to read the clouds in much the same way that most people read books. Geologists learn to look at a hillside covered with gravel, and spot the one piece that happens to be a fragment of dinosaur bone. Part of this is learning what to look for, but part is also training your eyes to really see all the details that are there.
