Welcome to the Solstice Blog

Hello World,

The purpose of this blog is mainly Astronomy, but also to connect the world to my personal adventures and to my company Astronomy in Action (www.astronomyinaction.com).  I want to become more connected to the digital world and especially to the Astronomy community as a whole.

Enjoy!
