A S T R O N O M Y - Anyone who has once really employed with astronomy things finds a life is not long enough for all the Fascination of Astronomy, even if you have a period in your life where you don´t follow all the current astro things, if you have time you will always look up into the depths and the infinity of space's to experience. Only then you can understand how small, tiny and alone we are in the universe.

Have fun with my website.
