About the Book
I became interested in astronomy when my nine-year old son asked to go out and identify some constellations for a school project. We drove a few miles to a park where we watched the stars emerge from the twilight. We discovered that the moons of Jupiter could be seen through binoculars, located constellations with familiar zodiac names, and saw the Milky Way splashed across the sky. It was an enchanting experience. In the years since, my son's interests advanced to more important things, but I'm still investigating the night sky, attempting to capture the romance and magic of the night through the lens of my camera. I'm a member of the Minnesota Astronomical Society, but during daylight hours I worked as a color imaging scientist. I am now retired but am still enthralled with the night sky and take every opportunity to portray its visual impact on our souls.
