On the eve of Christmas 1982, when the skies were clear and the air was full of excitement, I went up to a roof of old tiles and damp moss with a Walmart Kid’s Telescope that my parents bought for me as a Christmas present.
The telescope was mounted on a tabletop tripod, rough and uncomfortable, but at that time it was the most incredible thing that I had ever seen. I placed it at the top of a metal staircase full of paint residue, climbed it, and tried to focus on the Pleiades, which I thought I was confusing with another well-known constellation at the time.
The feelings of astonishment and excitement that I felt were tremendous. Magnificent. Many years have passed since that day, but the passion I feel towards astronomy is as strong as ever. It is the happiness and pleasure I feel when I look at a sky full of gleaming stars that keeps me coming back.
