Speaker: Paul Money

I am an English Amateur Astronomer who has had a love for the night sky since I was 'knee high to a grasshopper' (or so the saying goes!). As far back as I can recall I used to look up at the night sky and just gaze in wonderment at all the twinkling points of light without really understanding or even wanting to understand what they actually were. That would come later as I began to read any 'space' related book or magazine I found either at home or at school. I can just about remember the days of Apollo and for most of my early years the interest was more in becoming an Astronaut rather than exploring the Universe with a Telescope.
