Welcome to Astronomy World!
A little about myself and astronomy: I created this world because I love astronomy. I really, really, love astronomy. When I was ten, I went to a restaurant and saw a huge wall mural of the Andromeda Galaxy. At my house, we had a tiny refractor telescope. I knew this wasn't enough, so I bought (with help) an 8 inch Dobsonian reflector. I looked up one time to try to find something to look at and saw something fuzzy- the Orion Nebula. This is when I really got into using my telescope. I still have my Dobsonian, but I am hoping to get a new telescope or an azimuth mount for it. I love taking my telescope anywhere to observe anything!
I wanted a place to post my astronomy-related projects and news, and to have a place for you to post to the corkboard and start forum threads. Posts in this world can include how-tos, interesting pictures, questions, art, and anything else. The subjects included can be deep space, crafts, models, papercraft, space-age looking things, and lots more. I will try to update this world a few times a week, or as often as I can.
