About

The AstroGeek is Bill Hudson, a professional computer geek and amatuer astronomer, and a member of the Fremont Peak Observatory Association where he gets to play with a 30″ f/4.8 Newtonian reflector.

Besides an interest in astronomy, he also collects compasses, and geocaches, and occasionally pokes fun at creationists and promotes a strict constitutional separation of church and state.

If you’re coming here for the first time, welcome!   I have a list of websites on the left side that I have found interesting and/or informative.   They are categorized, so you’ll find all of the blogs together, all of the telescope sites together, etc.    I hope you find this page a useful resource.

  1. Hello,
    I own a Web 2.0 astronomy oriented website with webapps and stuff and I wanted to ask whether or not you would care for a link exchange (Tell me where you would like your link placed). My website is
    Astronomy-Page: Astronomy 2.0
    Please reply by email.
    Thanks,
    Clement

  2. Wonderful website. Quick links, well written, and above all:

    “and occasionally pokes fun at creationists and promotes a strict constitutional separation of church and state.”

    Truth may someday overcome… if it isn’t hidden!

    Thanks for putting up a site reflecting the need to be accurate about 2012 events, excellent beginner’s guide, and fantastic information on the subject of astronomy. Will be checking back often.

  3. Bill,

    Thanks for inviting me to the meeting Saturday! Can you e-mail me a link to the place you ordered your laser from?

    Your site is very interesting.
    Concerning the religions, no human is condemned to any one of them. We need to be rational, which supposes to be educated, informed, active and combative against all the falses (inclusively by a-theism, or , better said, anti-superstitionism). To see the speech about Atheism of Joseph Lewis, cited below.
    All good.

    Atheism, by Joseph Lewis, 1930
    “Is it to the interest of a man to be a boy all his life?”
    — Thomas Paine
    “(…) Atheism is Mental Freedom
    Atheism is a vigorous and a courageous philosophy.
    It is not afraid to face the problems of life, and it is not afraid to confess that there are problems yet to be solved.
    It does not claim that it has solved all the questions of the universe, but it does claim that it has discovered the approach and learned the method of solving them.
    It has dedicated itself to a passionate quest for the truth.
    It believes that truth for truth’s sake is the highest ideal. And that virtue is its own reward.
    It believes that love of humanity is a higher ideal than a love of God. We cannot help God, but we can help mankind.”

  5. Hi Bill,

    My name is Hannah Green and I am a journalist with BBC News. I would be interested to speak to you about your experiences of ‘debunking’ myths about the end of the world.

    Please can you email me at hannah.green01@bbc.co.uk if you would like to discuss this further

    Thanks
