Cloudy Nights Star Contributors for June, 2005!
The “Cloudy Nights Star Contributor” symbol is an award of recognition that is presented to selected members each month. Members who have made substantial contributions to this site are nominated and then voted on by the moderators and administrators of Cloudy Nights. Many members of this site make great contributions, and devote much time and energy to the education and discussions that define the Cloudy Nights forums. While it is clear that every member of this community is important to its success, certain members have gone above and beyond the “call of duty”. This is our effort to recognize these individuals.
Each of the “Star Contributors” is presented with a special logo that can be used in their signature line, or as an avatar. This logo is a symbol of thanks and respect from the moderators and administrators of this forum. We sincerely hope it will be displayed proudly.
The Cloudy Nights Star Contributors for June, 2005 are:
Greg Piepol (gpiepol) does not stir out of the Solar Observing forum, but if you visit there you can't help be impressed by his work and his willingness to share what he knows. The advice he passes along has had good results for regulars in that forum. His posts are always informative, always on topic, but never dull in any sense. He communicates his delight in what he's doing as clearly as he does information on how he does it.
Dan (Dan Luna) is a friendly voice in a number of CN forums including Science of Astronomy and Space Exploration, Stellar Reading, and the Off Topic Observatory, but he is probably best known as the Scholar of the Lunar Forum. Dan lists a bright reading light and a comfortable chair among his astronomical tools. Ready and eager to answer the most difficult questions, Dan exhibits a great depth of knowledge that is reflected by his impressive astronomy library. His carefully considered replies and gentle good humor are welcome in every forum he visits.
Thanks to both of you for helping make Cloudy Nights what it is!
