Greetings from Soutwest Missouri

#1

Post by konza »

Just stumbled across TSS after waiting to see if Astronomy Forum would be back on line. After registering and seeing all the "exiles" from AF made me smile. I do not post much but read and try and search out answers. Happy to be here ! I'm not into anything special other than simple stargazing. Following Jack Horkheimer's advice I like to "Keep Looking Up" :Astronomer1:
