My work requires me to be out in the bush fairly often and one of my favourite parts of being out there is looking up at night and seeing the stars in all their glory, away from the city lights. It’s really awful that so many of us are completely divorced from the fantastic spectacle of the sky at night.

I’ve always been interested in learning more about it, the constellations, the different types of stars and when to look for the planets, comets and meteor storms. When I saw a gay astronomy group was being formed, I thought it was a great opportunity to pursue this curiosity in a friendly, relaxed setting.

My other interests are all other aspects of the natural world, I’m a zoologist by profession, but I also bush walk and birdwatch for fun. When I’m not doing that, I love art, theatre, literature (I usually only read dead authors, but I make an exception for Peter Carey) fine music, especially opera and 80s goth.

I’ve been interested in Astronomy since I was a kid. I remember as a kid events like Skylab passing over more than 40 years ago, or simply just lying on my back staring up at the night sky, wondering about all the light and dark patches above me, or staring at the moon.

My interests in all things about what lay beyond our home planet of Earth stayed with me into adulthood, and I’m regularly reading about it, discovering and learning.

Star Gayzers allows me to share my interest with friends and continue to learn about our fascinating place in our galaxy and universe from our members and guest speakers.

Scheduling Co-Ordinator:   Bill R.

I've been fascinated by all things space-related since I was a kid watching the Apollo moon landings and getting hooked on Star Trek and similar shows.

I was involved in the early days of Stargayzers and after a long break have rejoined the group and am particularly looking forward to observing the moon and planets and learning from the expertise of the group.
