I'm an enthusiastic amateur astonomer and a former secretary of my astronomy club
the Astronomical Society of Southern New England (assne.org).
That's me in the club photo, looking up during the solar eclipse of August 21, 2017.
Did you see it, too? I would love to hear about it.
After many years of observing and reading about the stars and our universe,
I wrote my own naked-eye stargazing guide and astronomy book from my personal perspective.
Join me where fact meets fantasy, where the informative meets the imaginative.
