Letter from the Editor

We've Moved!
The good news is I've moved to astronomy country, away from the light-polluted big city. As you can see from the picture, I'm now located in Flagstaff, Ariz. And, wow, talk about dark skies! Flagstaff is one of the first cities in the U.S. to enact a lighting ordinance. They are very serious about keeping their skies dark. It sure makes a difference.

Though I've given up the astronomy events that a large city affords, there are ample opportunities for astronomy in my new hometown. As most of you know, famed Lowell Observatory is here, as is the U.S. Naval Observatory and the astrogeology division of the U.S. Geological Survey where Eugene Shoemaker worked. There are several amateur astronomy groups in the area, as well. I don't think I'll miss astronomy in the big city too much. Phoenix is just down the road if I do.

I'm looking forward to being back at work on theWoman Astronomer. I've missed it, as I'm sure you have. On that note, I'd like to ask for your help. I'm in need of material for future issues. If you are an aspiring writer, please get in touch with me (at webmaster@womanastronomer.com), let me know what you have or would like to write about. (And please visit our Writer's Guidelines page.) If you're not a writer, let me know what you would like to read about. I'd be grateful for any help.

Also, I'm in need of more advertisers to continue to fund this publication (and web site). Any other suggestions for funding would be appreciated, as well. You may also help by getting everyone you know to subscribe, and renew your own subscription.

Thank you for supporting this publication, and me personally, in the past. I hope I may continue to count on your support in the future.

Debra L. Davis
