    U.S. AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. -- Nova, a 15 week old full white-phase Gyrfalcon, is the latest addition to the Falconry team and new mascot of the United States Air Force Academy. Her name was decided by a vote amongst the entire cadet wing on Wednesday, September 2nd, 2020. The name Nova represents the new era of Space Force and of a star showing a sudden large increase in brightness. Nova’s purchase to the academy was funded by donations from the USAFA class of ’95. The Falconry team is the oldest and smallest team at the academy with twelve cadets handling eleven falcons of various breeds and ages. (U.S. Air Force photo/Joshua Armstrong)
