Dear D'Mone,
I really liked the idea of your project. I am working between Germany and France, and there aren't many baseball fields here!
From the graph you show in the video, I see that in day 2 all albedo measurements were much lower than in day 1 and day 3. Do you have any idea to explain why? was the weather the same in all 4 days?
If I had to cover a baseball field, which color would you suggest?
Thank you for your replies!
What the most surprising thing you learned through your research?

If you had another year to do this project, what would you add to it and why?
