Unfortunately, Cstar1 , the host and energy source of this Forum, and a member and sparkplug of Delphiforums since the 1980's, passed away recently, too young (says a 75 year old).
Browse, and see who else can help keep this Forum alive.
Oh Kass, I am so very sorry to hear of Cstar1 passing!
I just found this blog the other day, and I was thrilled! In the last 30 years, I have been researching everything about space...both near and far.
I want to keep learning. I cannot explain it at the moment but studying the Heavens is having an unexpected effect on me! So, I will make sure to lead others this way.
Peace to you
So let it be written, so may it be done.
If you drive into the desert, or anywhere beyond 50-100 or so miles from towns and cities, barring smog, smoke or clouds, you'll see the stars as they should be seen.
Good morning Kass,
I have seen the beautiful night skies while visiting Colorado and Wyoming. I saw the Milky Way for the first time while there. I am a country girl so the night skies here in the south are quite beautiful, just not quite as breathtaking.
Kass, I imagine you know astronomy well. May I have permission to ask a few questions.
Unfortunately, I am nowhere near being an astronomer, despite the effort my father put into trying to teach me the prominent stars (he'd been a long distance aircraft navigator during World War II); but I take photographs and enjoy seeing what I know as long as I can see it.
That is really cool what your father did WWII. My grandfather was a Barnstormer in WWI.
My great-grandfather was a forensic photographer in Louisville, Kentucky and my dad loved photography.
As for me, I always loved astronomy. But I ended up becoming a musician. And I did not make tons of money like I thought I would. LOL! But that's okay I just love to play and sing. Motherhood was more important to me. I raised four beautiful and outstanding children!
There is so much wonderful info in here. If you don't mind I would like to put a link to Galaxies from my forum.
