    Default Hello from South Carolina!!



    Hello everyone! Greetings from South Carolina! My name is Courtney and I am 28 years old. I have always had a fascination with astronomy and the universe in general. (I have my Dad to thank for that.) I very recently decided I would like to pursue my love for the stars more seriously. So I decided what better way to learn than make some friends that also share the same interests! I am currently taking a course for astronomy online. I am trying to learn more about telescopes and I am in the process of memorizing my constellations. Eventually, I would like to try and pursue a degree in Astronomy. (I already have a college degree but it isn't anything fancy.) If there are any patient people here who are willing to help me out, I would be more than grateful. Please don't be shy and feel free to message me!!! (I promise I am very friendly!!) I look forward to the friendships I will build here!

    Hello and welcome Courtney! You will find lots of friendly folks and good advice here. I envy the warmer winter nights that you have for observing compared to what I have to endure!

    Hello David!

    The warm nights here are nice..sometimes. Other times I still wish I lived up north. (I am a native of Illinois but grew up mostly in Michigan!) Stargazing was much easier there because there wasn't a lot of light pollution where I lived. It made things much easier despite having to bundle up during the winter! Here there are a lot of bright lights and the observatory is downtown. Thank you so much for your warm welcome! It means a lot to me!
