Welcome to Megan's Online Astronomy Journal.
Hi everyone. I'm new here.
Hi. I'm Megan. I'm 18 years old. I have a 2 year old daughter who is also in love with..the moon. I've been in love with astronomy since I saw my first meteor shower when I was about 9. It looked like the sky was falling. I've never seen a meteor shower like it since! I stargazed for years, but never got as serious about it until this past year when I met my now boyfriend. I got him interested in it too! He bought me my 4 inch. meade telescope, my lenses and filters, and my constellation/star/planet finder. I still very much a beginner though.
Aside from astronomy, I like movies, being with my friends, painting, going to the mountains. Anything outdoors really.
Favorite Sky Object
My favorite sky object is Jupiter. I think it's absolutely beautiful. Even without a scope.
Experience: < 1 Year
Astrophotography: No, I do not take pictures through my telescope
Where I live
Comments about where I live
I live in the country, so I have a pretty dark sky to observe. I like it.
