The fascination of star gazing started already during the first years of my childhood. I was looking up at the night sky with my grandfather every summer night, studying constellations, looking at the moon through binoculars and counting satellites flying by.
The interest never left me even though years went by finding myself occupied with many other things before it finally became my main hobby during spare time.
I was born in Stockholm, Sweden 1979 but grew up most of my childhood years in Greece. Later I’ve studied some physics at Lund’s university and was hoping to continue with astronomy. Circumstances led me however to return back to my other big interest in IT/software development and today I’m working as an IT-consultant at CGI Group Inc. During my off-time, I spend most of my time with my fiance Melissa.
My main hobbies are astronomy and astrophotography and I was also a member of several astronomy societies in south Sweden but time was never enough to continue being an active member. My other hobbies are Music (playing clarinet and piano) and Scuba Diving (advanced open water diver).
This blog is dedicated to my family (Melissa, Vanita and Lena Grace), our friends and to all of you who share the same fascination towards the the beauty of the night sky and all secrets yet to be discovered.
Q: Why is this blog in English?
A: The reason to this is, most things (articles, guides, science articles) in astronomy are written in English. Besides my foreign friends get the chance to understand and be part of what I’ writing. Apart from these reasons I can also reach visitors who either just happen to visit this blog randomly or to reach other amateur astronomers and astrophotographers on an international scale.
