About this blog
I’ve been in love with the sky and space for my entire life. For most of that time I thought that actually observing would be too hard or too expensive. I was wrong, and now I’m making up for lost time.
I have friends with telescopes that mostly see the insides of their closets, and others who never look up at all. I first conceived of this blog as a way to give them all a much-needed kick in the pants, and to give me a place to put up all my astro-themed ramblings. But in the past year I’ve realized that there are a lot of people out there who want to know more about the night sky and just don’t know where to begin–the same situation I was in for most of my life. So this blog is for everyone who looks up in wonder and wants to understand what they see–especially those who don’t think they have time to do so.
