Welcome to my FREE and NON-COMMERCIAL collection of astronomy links!

* Some individual links are in ALL CAPS to indicate their extra value.

* For frequent visitors I have included a NEWEST LINKS section for temporary placement of my latest additions.

* I have resisted the urge to create too many categories, for two reasons: First, many links would properly
belong to more than one category. Second, I want to encourage you to browse and discover. HINT: Try using your browser's search box to locate key words in titles.

* This site is not an encyclopedia, just one amateur astronomer's inspiration for what star gazers
at all levels of experience would like to see. It's also a site to play with the newest ideas in cosmology.

* If this site earns your approval, please put a link to it on your own web site.

* To share with me, or to report non-linking links, just email me.
