Celestial Wonders Revealed

Astronomy classes, how to use a telescope, seasonal constellations, meteorites, meteorites for sale, exploring the moon, observing the planets

Thanks for visiting my website!

   Are you one of the 99% of people who looked up at the stars and wished you could name them? This website will lead you to that opportunity, guaranteed!

   Most people have never looked through an astronomical telescope. Sure, they have looked through a land-based telescope or binoculars, but never have they gone out at night...let their eyes adjust to the darkness, and looked through an astronomical telescope to see the nearby planets, the beauty of the Ring Nebula, the Spaceman star cluster, double stars, and distant galaxies.

   Unfortunately, many people who do own telescopes have often given up in frustration after trying to use them unsuccessfully. The telescopes were subsequently banished to a remote corner of an attic, basement, or garage.

   I would like to change that...
