If you are Interested in why this boring looking web page .. looks like it does .. click here! (not Astronomy)
I find that multimedia resources in Astronomy on the web, are pretty meager (but getting better!). I would suggest that institutions, societies and professionals create more audio resources as part of your serious content. This feature would greatly increase access to Astronomy for many -- some of us learn best by doing, some by seeing, and some by hearing. If you know of an Astronomical multimedia resource, please eMail me.
The observing section now has it's own page and is accessed at the master menu. For a quick look see "Observing Page"
To make your own "backyard observations" click "Heavens Above" .. above. It is set for Taos, NM .. but can be adjusted for any place by editing the location. This page is a great place to start to learn real astronomy: you can obtain satellite predictions, Star Maps, Star/Constellation information, definitions etc. etc. Try it!
Notice there is a clickable "Language Translator" in the menu below (in row labelled "Life"). This will allow you to quickly make short on-the-fly translations of non-english material. For more details, "click here" If you think you will need this feature, bring up the appropriate language translator's URL .. then minimize it for use, as needed. (ps I am always looking for larger, easy to use Internet translators. If you know of one please, eMail me.
