Our day started out around 5 in the morning! Our group of 4 students including Lulu, Sophie, and Laura went down to get a quick breakfast just before we start heading to the airport for our flight to Alice Springs. The airport went by smoothly as always but we were bummed that it was rainy weather at Alice Springs but it didn't stop as from sleeping outside "under the stars". We slept in a place called Ooranminna homestead where we slept under a cover in swags. Swags are a type of sleeping bag used by the early pioneers when first exploring central part of Australia. Then we had lunch and learned how to crack a whip which was totally awesome but I got hurt a lot ha ha. After that we went around a campfire and listened to an educational speech about our solar system and different galaxies. We learned that in 2031, the astronomers think that a comet might actually struck earth. Too bad we couldn't see the star for our self due to the heavy amount of clouds. Then it was night time so we all went around a fire and laid out our swags. That was the end for another amazing day in Australia!
