About my book, “Outer Solar System Moons: Your Personal 3D Journey” (Printed and digital copies can be purchased at etsy.com/shop/ETExists)...

I got the itch to author this after the success of my colleague’s book, “Mars: Your Personal 3D Journey” by @AntonioParis! 1/n
All of the 3D images were made in @Photoshop and the final draft was made in @powerpoint. While the entire process was very arduous and frustrating at times, the result has been nothing short of rewarding, as the book is finally starting to sell bigly! The very positive...2/n
...feedback I’ve received has made the journey worth it, so far, and I hope to author another book again, someday. I’m extremely grateful to Dr. Jessica Noviello for her amazing Introduction and feedback prior to publishing, and the quote from @AstroDocScott in the...3/n
...beginning of the book was more than I could’ve hoped for. If you’re thinking about publishing, my advice is to do it because you have passion for the topic and not for the money, as it’s a VERY long-term investment and you probably won’t make a real profit for years. 4/n

Next year the biggest astronomical event visible from the UK will be a Partial Solar Eclipse on 10 June 2021. Some parts of the world will see an Annular Eclipse. I've got plans to capture the Partial one from here.
This will, weather permitting, be only my second go capturing a Solar Eclipse. My first time was back in March 2015. I had my Sky-Watcher Telescope, Canon 1200D camera and Nikon L810 camera for pictures. This is one of the pictures I took. Image
Next year's eclipse will only be about a third obscured from here and the rest of the UK. Nevertheless I'm planning to use my Sky-Watcher again, and Celestron telescope to capture the big event. This is the smiley face view I hope to see. Image

After the Geminids meteor shower the next big Astronomical event is a Solar Eclipse on 14 December. However not visible from the UK. Handily there is a big Astronomical occurring after that, visible all over the world. A super conjunction on 21 December. Jupiter and Saturn.
Jupiter and Saturn will appear so close together they will nearly look like one object. Should be an amazing sight in Binoculars and telescopes. Also a great photo opportunity. Will be tricky to observe and capture from the UK though.
The planets will be very low on the horizon from my location and mid northern latitudes. Won't be possible for me to see them from my house so I'll have to take all my doings to another spot. I'll need a clear southern horizon looking to the southwest. I know the perfect spot.

Good morning! My week on People of Space is dedicated to the theme of women in space and STEM. We've looked at the @UNOOSA #Space4Women programme, and space books by women, with forays into the works of Margaret Cavendish (1600s) and Barbara Ward (1970s).
And what a week it's been! Women are pretty thin on the ground in NobelPrizeLand, but first of all was the good news that Andrea Ghez was awarded a Nobel Prize for Physics for her work on black holes (with Reinhard Genzel) nobelprize.org/prizes/physics… #WomeninSTEM
Then the Nobel Prize for Chemistry was won by Emmanuelle Charpentier and Jennifer A. Doudna "for the development of a method for genome editing." nobelprize.org/prizes/chemist… #WomenInSTEM

Good morning everyone! I've just been in an amazing panel about satellites and #Space4Women - I'll post the link to the video here or over at my regular account when it's up. #WSW2020
Today is pretty flat out - later on I'll be chairing a session at the Australasian Space Health Symposium as well as presenting a paper. Is the paper finished? What an interesting question which I will decline to answer at this time. #WSW2020
You can find more details about the Australasian Space Health Symposium here. I'm pretty sure it's not too late to register (it's free) adastravita.com/space-health-s… #WSW2020
