It's the Astronomy Online non-Blog, or un-Blog.
Everyone has a blog now and since I am no follower of trends, I decided to merge the blog with the website. And I don't want to neglect the website in favor of posting on the blog.
These are the pages that were on the blog of old:
- Archive (Index of Pages)
- Current Trends
- Soho Live
Google Maps - Mars
Google Maps - Moon
HiRISE - MRO Imaging
Software for the Mac
Starry Night Online
Thank you for visiting!
September 2007 News:
My vision has taken a turn for the worse. I have been placed on permanent disability and will be forced to retire early. There are mixed blessings with this of course, and I am happy to have achieved so much in my 37 years on this Earth.
I have only done very minor updates to the site. Even with my huge 30" monitor, things are tricky. When one lowers the ideal resolution of an LCD, things get pixilated and that adds to the hard ship.
As I mentioned before, I have started playing the drums again - which is one thing I can do that requires little visual assistance. I have even created a new website dedicated to this: AstroDrummer.com. Soon I will have audio clips of my playing.
In the world of astronomy, all I can report are two new books - I cannot read them without the aide of an 8x photo loupe (and that is one word at a time). Universe by Freedman and Kaufmann is a highly respected text that is now in its 8th edition.
The other text is The Arp Atlas of Peculiar Galaxies by Kanipe and Webb. Some of the images in the book were contributed to my good friend and fellow alumnus Tim Hunter.
