The heavens declare the glory of God;
The skies proclaim the work of His hands.
When I consider your heavens;
The work of your fingers;
The moon and the stars;
Which you have set in place.
What is man that you are mindful of him;
And the son of man that you care for him.
I first became interested in astronomy in 1965, just a little too late to see the spectacular sungrazing comet, Ikeia-Seki. Since that time I have maintained an active interest in observing the night sky. To me there is nothing to match standing out under a dark, star-filled sky, especially in late winter/early spring when the brilliant Scorpius/Sagittarius Milky Way blazes overhead, casting shadows on the ground.
My main observational interests have generally been in the solar system, particularly comets and meteors. However I have not restricted my observing to these, as the pages below will show. Each of the links below will bring up a page containing images of that type of object.
