One of my part-time jobs is as an astronomy instructor at Schoolcraft College, a 2-year school in Livonia, Michigan. I've been interested in astronomy since I was a wee lad--I've still got my childhood astronomy book, which I might have owned before I could read. And I can remember the magic of a planetarium trip I can barely remember. I became a real amateur astronomer in high school, when I was able to buy a share in a family 6" telescope. |
In College I hooked up with the University Lowbrow Astronomers and the Eastern Michigan University astronomy club.

Here are a few pictures I've taken over the years.

I thought I had some neat pictures, but there are some other sites that are even better. Take a look at:
University Lowbrow Astronomers Ann Arbor's Astronomy club
EMU Astronomy Club Where I spend my best nights as an Eastern Michigan University student, long,long, ago.
