Welcome to my Astronomy Links Page!

I am a retired Science teacher. I play Ice hockey with my sons and grandsons every Friday at the Canam ice rink in Romeoville, IL. I enjoy giving Astronomy and Space Travel presentations at Libraries and Schools.

    We missed the November 17-18 Leonid Meteor shower because of cloud cover, but the video above was captured by George Varros from Mount Airy, Maryland.  Jupiter is the big white dot that is not twinkling and the picture below was taken by Mike Boschat, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.  Isn't technology great!
