Well, as the international year of astronomy IYA2009 wraps up, I hope its been a good one for you all.
This year seems to have gone so quickly and I guess we all look back at this time of year and think about what we did, didn't do, or could have done better.
This year was ground breaking in a number of ways for me, had some unexpected frustrations, but realised the dream of getting AARTScope established. 2010 will no doubt have its own challenges and I wish everyone the best for the new year, the patience to persevere, the intuition and improvization to excell and the wisdom to pick your battles.
I leave you with the following, my final picture for this year:- A very Christmassy Orion. (Its a fun time of year.....so I have had a bit of fun with this).
