Welcome to Charlie's Online Astronomy Journal.
Welcome to my observation journel. I have bought new tool to observe the sky and look forward to sharing this with anyone and everyone.
I am 57 years old, involved with Scouting for 25+ years, and have a very inquistive Grandson, Josh, who is quite interested in learning more about the sky. I live in Skiatook, OK and have a great night observeration site.
At this point, I am interested in learning more about the constellations to teach younger children about. I will be using my knowledge mostly in Scouting applications and personal interest.
I am a HAM operator and operate under the Call Sign W5HOY.

Where I live
Comments about where I live
Skiatook is located 17 miles N of Tulsa. I am located at 36d, 22' 22" N and 95d 58' 21" W.
I live in the country with very little light interference and good "black" darkness areas. Typically we have no problem seeing most of the N Hemisphere constellations and Milky Way.
