EVERY DAY IS ASTRONOMY DAY! Hi, I'm Jason Higley, I've made this website so that we all can find things related to Florida Astronomy. Behind me is the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University 1 meter telescope in Daytona Beach (I was just visiting). They have free public viewing nights roughly 6 times a year.
Please feel free to let me know if you have Florida Astronomy related news or info at reachjasonh@ (and add gmail.com to the end of that.)
I've added a few older astronomy videos I've done to my Some Astro Images page.
