How I got interested in astronomy
Many years age,when I was in junior high school (now called middle school?) I had a social studies teacher whose husband was an amateur astronomer. One cold wintry night with snow crunching under foot, she invited the class to her house to look through her husband's telescope. He showed us how to look at constellations and all sorts of cool things in the sky. But I think what I remember the most was; we got very cold so eventually my teacher invited us all inside to drink hot chocolate and eat cookies. All in all it was a terrific experience. My interest in astronomy faded but has now returned big time. More to come on various astronomy adventures. Stay tuned.
