It’s Friday, day four on my quest to celebrate each day of National Women’s History Month. For some unknown reason, I just can’t seem to get my act together. So, I’m going to embrace my laziness and today, for your reading pleasure, I’m giving you 10 great websites I like with lots of links on women astronomers. Enjoy!

Greetings, Universe!

Welcome to the first official blog of I’m so happy you’ve chosen to join me and look forward to sharing some of my thoughts about women in astronomy.

Besides women astronomers, there are a number of topics I’ll write about in this space. I’m very interested in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) issues and education in general, especially how it affects girls. I’m sure I’ll throw in some science fiction (because that’s the path that led me to astronomy), some NASA and the New Space industry news, and anything else under the Sun that is hot.

I’ll also be turning you on to links and videos I run across which I think you’ll find of interest and who knows what else I’ll find intriguing and want to share with you.

Finally, and most importantly, I’d like to know what you want to see in this blog, so please feel free to drop me a comment with any suggestions you may have.

Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to getting to know you. Oh, and please be sure to sign up to be notified of future entries.

Clear skies!

PS – Don’t forget to go outside the next couple of nights to check out the Perseid Meteor Shower, one of the best of the year.
