Comet Machholz Images Wanted

Posted By Raymond Fox


I am working with renowned comet hunter, Don Machholz, on a website featuring his discoveries. The site will include a gallery of Comet Machholz photos and we are soliciting images from astrophotographers. There is no monetary compensation involved, but you would receive a photographer's credit that could be linked to either your e-mail address or website.

If interested, please contact me at, labeling the subject of your e-mail "Comet Machholz Photo."

Clear skies.

Light Pollution Thoughts

Posted By Raymond Fox

Peter, thank you for bringing this topic up. I live near Sacramento, California, and the skies are rapidly going from bad to worse. When I was a kid, the skies here were fairly good -- the Little Dipper was easily recognizable. Today, I can barely make out the Big Dipper. What will my kids be able to see? Will the sun be the only star they see on a daily basis?

I would like to learn more about how we can turn the clock back and take back our skies for ourselves and our children's children.
