Disappointing conditions as Jupiter moves from morning to late night observing... Grs Jr is barely visible... Chris Go caught the same view an exact rotation later in much better conditions.

About a week ago a new website called "PhotographingSpace.com" went live and one of my articles is the first feature up.

Once again I've managed to slip undetected into esteemed company including +Mark Gee , +Michael A. Phillips, +Cory Schmitz and +Tanja Schmitz, +Paul Stewart and other legends.

The site is already a great resource if you just want to learn how to take star trails or milky way photos, but will keep growing from here with any luck.
If you want me to write about anything in particular, let me know!

I can’t tell you how to get an APOD. What I can share with you is how I planned, acquired, and processed that image that went viral, eventually to be shared by NASA crew members on the space station past and present, world media outlets, and even ESA. I was lucky that the astronomers who …

Introduction
Loving husband, proud father, computer geek, astro freak, music lover, sports nut and general fun-loving guy

I think I'm the kind of person who doesn't like strong opinions.  It doesn't matter if I agree with your opinion or not, it's not factual, it never will be 100% factual and I don't care for it.  That's probably why I hate politics.

I've always loved facts, provable facts of nature and things concerning science.  

Over time, I found that most facts are mostly reference and it was the creation of and discovery of new things that intrigued me.

"A good friend once told me you are our memory
without them we equal nothing
And all I can see is the place I wanna be
Suddenly my life was so free
Leaves at my feet, blown to the ground
their echoes are reaching my ears
Nights coming fast, suns going down" - A7x
