About this site
Hi everyone and welcome to my astronomy blog! 🙂
I’m Raven Yu (not my real name), an amateur astronomer and science-enthusiast from the Philippines who loves discovering and learning new things about life and everything that goes around the vast universe.
I started this blog last June, 2010 and it’s still a work in progress. It mainly contains my observations of the night sky and insights regarding astronomical events, and also some amateur astro-images taken by me or by my fellow amateurs.
I put up this blog to help spread knowledge and enthusiasm in the field of astronomy, to share my passion, and likewise to inspire other amateur astronomers like me to pursue their love for this field.
I’ll be updating this site with information and photos regarding the latest topics on astronomy.
If you want to contact me, please feel free to send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Sic itur ad astra! (Reach for the Stars) 😀
