About

Hello and welcome to my new astronomy blog, Blogstronomy. I will hopefully update this fairly regularly with random pieces of astronomy-related bits and bobs. For the time being at least, it will concentrate on theoretical astronomy and astrophysics, as opposed to observational astronomy, as there are many, many sites and blogs dealing with amateur backyard or back garden astronomy but not many that actually invite readers to ask questions about the way the universe works.

The creation of this blog was triggered when I made this post at my general blog. I'm hoping to address misunderstandings and myths, as well as provide stepping stones and starting points for anyone who's interested in any aspect of astronomy. I want to receive questions to answer and I'd also like to hear from people who already know about astronomy and who might be interested in making contributions to this blog, either helping to answer questions or as a 'guest blogger,' whether as a one-off or regularly.

Finally, if you're knowledgeable in things that I blog about and you spot any errors, glaring or otherwise, feel free to put me right. My knowledge is probably out of date in one or two areas, and although I try to keep myself abreast of developments it's entirely likely that some things have passed me by!
