Solar Flars? My point is that astronomy is a very interesting subject. Even if I only stay on the computer. The sun is very active these days and makes an observer very keen about astronomy in general. I like space weather, and looking on various sites throughout the Internet. I have a good grasp of the fundamentals and like to go to a star party as much as the next person. I tend to do naked eye astronomy when I am out at night, and I do have some binoculars. I like to read and look at my star maps. I tend to check my moon and constelations everyday. Mostly I surf the net about this subject. Discovery is the best way to learn!
