ADASTRAgrl's Links

In July 1999, I moved from Columbia, SC, up to Alexandria, VA. For just a little longer than 9 years I worked at Melton Memorial Observatory. I created the Observatory pages as well as helped to maintain the Astronomy Center pages. I am also a member of the Midlands Astronomy Club and created those pages and still help maintain them. My personal webpages have undergone a couple of moves and changes. This is roughly v3 now.

I also worked for nearly 11 years at Jeff Price Tennis, Ski, & Skate. They are a second family.

I also recently (November 1999) helped create Soldier Boy's web site, which advertises his our Colorado Mountain Cabin (Warner/Pines Cabin). The place is for rent and in a great locale for astronomy. We don't get to spend enough time there and that's why I don't have a lot of astrophotos from there, but you can check out the cabin as well as some of my nature, wildlife, and scenic shots on those pages!

In early 2001, friends of Soldier Boy's bought a B&B in Breckenridge, CO. It came with a web site that was in horrible shape and I volunteered to help them out. The Fireside Inn

In Aug 2000, I started to work at the University of Maryland teaching a little in their College Park Scholars program Science Discovery & the Universe. I also work for the NASA Discovery Mission Deep Impact in a variety of roles (Liaison to Amateur Astronomers, co-curator for website, webmaster for the amateur subsite), including renovating and now maintaining the internal science site (which, unfortunately, I can't show you.) And in May 2002, I also took over as director of the campus Observatory.

Now for pages that I visit a lot (other than mine, Deep Impact's, MAC's, and the UM Observatory), there's Heavens Above Main Page (used to be the GSOC) and you can set it up for your location.

Other pages
NASA (I know you're not surprised that I included that one!)
SKY & Telescope and
ASTRONOMY are the online versions of two popular amateur astronomy magazines.Can you tell I like astronomy??!!

Astronomy is not my only past-time (I do have a life, when I'm not working on these pages!, but then I have a job and no time to work on the pages - what a cruel circle!). I also like to read (sci-fi ala Asimov, ST and SW, and medieval historical fiction), cross-stitch, and photography. I also liked to watch ST:TNG, ST:DS9, ST:Voy, and B5. Star Wars is awsome, but I really wish they'd make some movies out of Asimov's Robot and Foundation stories (yeah, I know there's that one screenplay, 'I, Robot' from Harlan Ellison floating around, so why don't they go ahead and make the movie?!) Oh Yeah, this page is supposed to be favorite links not things! So the links for the above babble are as follows:

Isaac Asimov Home Page
Jenkins' Spoiler-Laden Guide to Isaac Asimov
