I’m a long-time amateur astronomer and member of the American Association of Variable Star Observers (AAVSO). My observing passions include everything from auroras to Z Cam stars. I also write a daily astronomy blog called Astro Bob. My new book, “Night Sky with the Naked Eye”, a guide to the wonders of the night using only your eyes, is now available on Amazon and BN as well as in local BN bookstores.

    Bob your a man after my own Ole Man Sol’s heart. He has been acting up a bit lately. We here are also members of AAVSO. My favorite is Betelgeuse which is 2X’s the size of Arcturus. As you know, It will go ‘super-nova’ in a million+ years or so. Wish we all could be around to see that happen ‘live’.. Take care.. .
