365 Days of Astronomy!

Welcome to My 365 Days of Astronomy Pages.

Mark and I created a number of podcasts for the 365 Days of Astronomy site in 2009 and 2010, and I am continuing that work in 2011.

I write and narrate each podcast; the space music accompanying my voice is by Geodesium – the stage name of Mark C. Petersen, one of the world’s foremost space music composers. We are pleased to be able to contribute our work to such a worthy cause and invite you to visit our company Web pages at Loch Ness Productions to learn more about what we do.

Many thanks to the 365 Days of Astronomy crew for making this all possible!

My List of Podcasts

Occasionally I talk about objects that you might want to find in the night sky or see pictures of, and this is the page that links to each of my episode pages. Each of these pages will go live approximately a week or so before “air time” on the 365 Days podcast pages. They all contains links, images, and other supporting material for the discussions in my podcasts.  I encourage you to visit early and often and let me (and the 365 Days folks) know what you think! (My email address is in the column to the left.)
