I'm busy working on my blog posts. Watch this space!

I was at Colgate in the year 1969 and I worked for Dr. Aveni at the Colgate observatory freezing my butt off. My job was to turn a little screw to advance a photographic plate a millimeter or so to take multiple pictures of a variable star. There was one night when Dr. Aveni came up, probably to see if I was turning the screw correctly. I'm sure he will remember this because the aurora borealis was visible plainly and a spectacularly overhead in Hamilton New York. I never did become an Astrogeophysicist or even graduate from Colgate. I did eventually become a middle school science teacher so was able to pass on my astronomical knowledge. I will never forget that night on the hill at Colgate though.
