Planetarium

Ask the Staff Astronomer!

Hey!

We know that the Universe is an unfathomably large place and astronomy is infuriatingly complicated.   Nevertheless, we want to help YOU understand the machinations and mysteries of this beautifully complex cosmos.   Toward that end, we ask you to send your astronomy/astrophysics questions to our staff astronomer: egleason@usm.maine.edu

He'll not only send a response to you personaly, but we'll post the question and answer to this web-page.  

And, since we've JUST started this service, we have, well, nothing here, yet.  So, the sooner you send questions, the sooner this page will stop looking so pathetic.
