Welcome to my blog! My name is Dave and I’m in the medical field, so most call me Dr Dave or just Doc. I also have an undergraduate degree in Astronomy and it is definitely one of my passions. I remember when my younger brother did a science report on comet Kohoutek back in 1973 and after reading some of the reference materials he was using I was hooked. I got my first telescope a couple of years later and the rest is history. My family and I recently moved to the “Land of Enchantment” from the dismal Northeast. I should have done this 10 years ago! This blog is really just a vehicle to share the many astronomy related activities I am involved in and perhaps a few people will get hooked like I did. This is my contribution to hopefully improving science literacy in our country especially. Thanks everyone for reading!
