One of the key points of creating this blog is to have a forum for celebrating the International Year of Astronomy 2009. Not exactly sure how this will work yet - I'm going to take another shot at a 365 project on Flickr, this time posting one astrophoto a day. That might prove as challenging as managing 365 shots of anything that came to mind last year, so my goal is going to be to use this blog to tie it all together over the course of the year.
Links on this blog have been configured to open in a new window. I know some people consider that a bad practice, that it should be left to the visitor. Personally, I prefer not "loosing my place" in a blog just because I clicked on a link without explicitly indicating it should open in a new window. I hope you agree.
