Hi All!

I'm caelum-lyra-orion, but my actual name is Melinda. :)
I have been interested in Astronomy since age 3, although I am a Sociologist (Master's student). However, my interest in Astronomy peaked once again when I was attending an honors program lecture about the (Infinity) of the Universe back in the May of 2009.
I absolutely positively love the heavens (sky), stars, and trying to make out the constellations. I always try to find Draco, and maybe I have spotted parts of it, but I have failed to identify the constellation as a whole.
The best look of the night sky I have got was when I was overseas and looked at the night sky: it was very black and millions of stars were visible of all sizes, strenghts of brightness, colors, satellites orbiting the Earth, it was spectacular.
I have come across the cosmotography.com website and the pictures they posted there of deep space are astounding. I want to look into a telescope and see that, or identify new areas. :)
Anyway, that's about me and Astronomy. Astronomy will always be of an interest to me.
