Fellow Chicago Astronomers...
I see that our newest members "Johnny", and "Rajasi"(as of 19 June), has joined.
Rajasi is a fellow Adler Planetarium Telescope interpreter in training that I had the pleasure to meet recently, and she is quite serious in persuing her astronomical career as a full fledged astronomer. Hopefully, when she is a professional astronomer and if I am very nice to her, she will let me sweep up the observatory and put away the eyepieces after her research sessions...
I know Johnny from the Seattle area from way back when we had too much time on our hands. He was my buddy in this silly online thing we did... Hailing and praising the all powerful influence of Cheese... Made a lot of freinds that way, created a cool following of cheese lovers worldwide, but also angered some....even got kicked out of a couple of chat rooms doing it... ;D We still laugh about that! I wish I could remember the site address I created for that.
I read in the astronomy magazines that even while serving in Iraq, that some still continue their astronomical persuits while carrying their gear. Too cool! John joined the service and is serving in Iraq presently, and hope to see him on the Forum regulary.
Way to go John!
Welcome Rajasi and Johnny to the Chicago Astronomer.
Yup! That's true Joe, start being nice to be now or else you are going to miss out on "Sweeping up the observatory and putting away the eyepieces".
Hello everyone, Joe already introduced me but here's a littlebit about myself. Like he said, I am going for a career in astronomy. For most of you, astronomy has been a hobby for years now and maybe you can help me get more involved into astronomy. So next time you all have star parties or any event going on, please let me know. If I can get there, I definitely will.
It is nice to be a part of The Chicago Astronomers.
This Sat night at 1111 E Shaumberg rd is a small star arty I do every month. starts at 9:30 behind the Schaumberg Nature Center. I will be there with my scope and another gentelman will be there with another 10". Come out and have some fun.

I'm more into thinking about astronomy than looking through a telescope. I've got a few interesting pictures that I'm putting into some astronomy web pages. Still working on them, of course. Don't have much on black holes yet, but that's coming. I've got a good picture of the Crab Nebula, which is what we see of a supernova 951 years after the fact.
My regular website (maddad.org) is down, temporarily. I hope. This is serving as a backup. Thanks though for the compliment. As I suppose you can guess from the URL's, www.geocities.com/davidmadison01/ is serving as my temporary homepage. GeoCities only allows 15 megs a site, so I had to split it into three sections becuase I'm at about 38 megs. The galaxy and nebula pages won't get much bigger because I'm cutting the number of table rows off at ten. Even with tiny thumbnails, about 4 or 5 kb apiece, the page can become a hog to download if you're on dialup.
If the universe is a ball the size of America, then the solar system is almost as large as the smallest cell in the human body.
