About Starlight Nights
Welcome to my website - Starlight Nights!
This is a place where you can find out about my interests in astronomy, space and science.
The emphasis here is on the practical side of things. Although my degree in physics gives me a good grounding in theory, my experience in engineering and software development atests to making things work in the ‘real’ world.
And why Starlight Nights?
This is a nod to a classic book about real world amateur astronomy. Written by an outstanding astronomer, Leslie Pelier. It describes Peltier's life growing up in the USA between the wars and the challenges and triumphs of star gazing in those days. The book is a real inspiration and brings to life the joy of observing the night sky. If you don't have a copy of this book - get one!
