Hometown: Woodland Park, CO
September 6, 2012
In 2008 I looked through my first pro-amateur telescope and saw the rings of a very small, off-white Saturn for the first time. Since then, I've walked around with my head pushed back at a 90deg angle, fascinated by the objects that swirl over our heads. Moons, planets, and our very own star capture my interest the most, as I feel that, of all of the 'stuff' in our universe, these are the objects that comprise our neighborhood. This is our home. With a history of Star Wars fanaticism to propel my curiosity and a BS degree from a university of professors that made me love my science all the more (UNCo Greeley), I hope to someday work alongside the amazing people that allow humans to explore and touch our neighbors and further our understanding of how and why we are here
I'm Maurice! I am fascinated by the study of astronomy and planetary astrophysics!
