Astronomy Articles


Here you will find articles that I have written over the years on a variety of astronomical subjects. Most of them were published locally. I do not make the assumption that I am an expert on these subjects, but have written them with the facts and knowledge I had available at the time. If there are any factual errors, I apologize.
