I am excited to bring you my monthly article on my favorite subject; Astronomy. My interest started in the seventh grade when my Mother, no I mean Santa, brought me my first telescope, a 3" Refractor. I was so excited that I took it outside right then until about 2 pm when my Mother came out and said aren't you going to come back in the house and open the rest of your presents? I said no, I was happy with what I had here. Still in my pajamas mind you. That night I got my first glimpse of Jupiter and it's moons. Well I was hooked. And I've been hooked ever since.
