The description of the web pages comes from the web site owner after I visit the site I put my comments below it. - Mike
A web site full of useful information for the amateur astronomer, the active observer, the archeoastronomer, and the telescope maker. Here, too is a refuge for the woman astronomer drifting in cyberspace.
The Star Gate has loads of good info. Want to know about Maya Astronomy? They have it!
Solar Eclipses, Comets, Moon, Deep Sky, Planets -- this site has pictures taken by real amateurs using real amateur equipment. All deep sky, planet, and lunar pictures were taken in Ohio, from a "not so dark" place - many were taken in light polluted Dublin OH while others were obtained at the Columbus Astronomical Society's dark sky site in SE Ohio. The "better" planet shots were done with the CAS C14.
When Bill and Ted say pictures I guess they MEAN pictures! There are tons of them here. The site is put together well and worth a trip or two (or three or four...)
Mother Nature's a pretty fair gardener herself, and she doesn't stop at spring wildflowers and prairie blossoms. Butterflies, warblers, meteor showers, mushroom gathering, herbal lore, gardening.....all of nature is fair game here. Nature lovers unite!
If your looking for a "public" meeting place to discuss all of nature This is a good place to start. Forums and chats and links to others...
Much stuff by Scott Emerson including an Astronomy page, and a major node on SorceryNet's IRC #Astronomy Channel. Internet Relay Chat, or IRC, is a real-time communications medium in which one can actively communicate with other individuals at any time, anywhere in the world.
Scott has several good links, current news in astronomy and a few very nice pictures that are well documented. A nice site to visit
Solar Eclipses - By Bill Kramer
A total solar eclipse is one of the most awesome sites you can behold in nature. It is an event that is never forgotten as the sun goes out completely and you are standing under the stars in the middle of a clear (or at least mostly clear) day.
Bill's site is a member of "Eclipse chasers Webring". Bill relates to his visitors great personal experiences with totality, including incredible pictures!
Astronomic Endeavors of Jay Reynolds
This site consists of news of recent events in local clubs, schedule of star parties, and personal accomplishments in Minor Planet Astrometry and deep space photography.
Very nicely laid out - has a good side by side comparison of a Meade LX200 8" and 10" - Great job Jay!
A Course In Astronomy - By Brother Albert Heinrich, FIC
Brother Heinrich is an Astronomy professor at Kent State University. His site includes his entire Astronomy course, 130 pages worth!! As well as a bunch of useful links.
Easy to read and well thought out. Aside from his Astronomy course, this site doesn't provide info directly, but it will point you in the right direction very quickly.
