The purpose of this site is to provide resources for amateur and professional astronomers challenged by less than ideal viewing conditions, or those who are visually impaired or blind. If you came across this site while searching for www.cloudynights.com, which is an excellent site for articles and reviews of telescopes and accessories please click on the link above and you will be redirected there.
Over the last few months, I found some really interesting links for those who are visually impaired and have an interest in astronomy and science in general. Here they are:
The SEE Project You Can Do Astronomy LLC The National Center For Blind Youth In Science Oralux - A Linux distribution for the visually impaired
Here are some other links I think you may find interesting:
Astronomy Magazines Astronomy Picture of the Day Eastside Astronomical Society Hubble Site International Dark Sky Association Jet Propulsion Laboratory NOAA's National Weather Service Seattle Astronomical Society Space.com Spaceweather.com Universe Today W.M. Keck Observatory
The name of this site was inspired by my interest in astronomy and my two Maine Coon cats Cloudy and Midnight, both of whom died in the Fall of 2005. They were my friends and I miss them. I hope that this site will not only be a tribute to my two friends, but will also help people with an interest in astronomy.
It is my intent to not only list astronomy related links, but also meteorological links and computer resources that will be of benefit to other astronomers. Eventually I will incorporate an image site featuring pictures from amateur astronomers. If you have any suggestions, thoughts, or comments, please feel free to send me an email and check the site blog for the latest site news and updates. Cloudymidnights now has a sister site on Google Pages, check it out.
Take care and happy star gazing - Jim Cox, Bellevue, WA.
I currently moderate a group on Yahoo called NW Astronomers for those amateur and professional astronomers living in the Pacific Northwest. If you are interested, please feel free to join.
