Full Circle December 25, 2010

Posted by orionrising in Notices.

Dear Readers,

One year ago I started this web log of my astronomical observations with binoculars, carving a little niche for myself in the big pond of the WordPress blogosphere. Within the past 365 days, I’ve seen amazing sights that were completely novel to me, from interesting asterisms, to glorious constellations, to amazing nebulas.  This was the next step from reading about these celestial objects in books; this was the real thing.  It was that sense of newfound awe at what the universe has to offer, which permitted me to observe in sub-freezing weather in the winter (!) and continues to pull me to observe today.  Even though personally life has changed remarkably, that passion for astronomy still exists.

Despite my current circumstances, being extremely busy with school and such, this blog isn’t dead yet. The next time I observe, I will enter it into this blog and share it with you.

Maybe this site was useful in setting targets for yourself, during your own observing sessions.  It is my hope that you’ve found this blog useful, at least slightly, in jumpstarting your passion for astronomy, or reigniting an old fire.

Thanks for your readership over the past year, I really appreciate it.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
