28. I've been into astronomy since I was about seven or eight

Vice President of the local junior astronomy league at twelve but I don't understand gravity and gravity is very important to astronomy, it keeps the planets in their orbits among other things and I know how to calculate those orbits and have software on my computer that does it.

Here's a picture of Comet Lovejoy and the Pleiades I took just recently. The original looks a good bit better than what I can squeeze onto DU..
