This Month's Skies


"Skies" has been published since November, 1997 as a monthly Astronomy newsletter for Enerdyne Inc. (http://www.enerdynet.com), a rather unique retail science/nature store with an well equipped optics department in Suttons Bay, MI, owned operated by Dick and his wife Pat since 1980.

Dick is a retired college professor of Astronomy, Geology, and Environmental Science (1970—2000). He has been an amateur astronomer since the 1956 apparition of Mars and had the advantage of introducing students to the wonders of astronomy with the telescopes of Northwestern Michigan College's Rogers Observatory (http://www.nmc.edu/rogersobservatory/) since its construction was completed in 1981.
