Anna Morris is a Missouri native currently living in Glenn's Ferry, Idaho. She received her Bachelor of Science in Foreign Area Studies and Russian at the United States Air Force Academy and received her Master of Arts Degree in International Relations from the University of Oklahoma.
She has had a deep love of space since she was a child and attended Space Camp in Huntsville, Alabama. She got her first telescope shortly thereafter and has enjoyed looking up at the stars and planets ever since. This launched a love of space that has developed over the years and she is currently an astrophotographer and enjoys taking photos of nebulas, galaxies, and planets through her telescope. In addition, this fascination with space has also resulted in an interest in meteorites.
Anna both collects and hunts for meteorites and enjoys sharing about them with students and children who always seem awed that they can hold a piece of space that fell to the Earth.
She hopes to help inspire young people to appreciate the night sky and exploration throughout our solar system.
