I’m Josh, founder and webmaster of MaineAstronomy.com. On this site you’ll find information about astronomy with special ties to Maine, from my passion of amateur astronomy. I developed an interest in astronomy back in highschool during my sophomore year, due to a great teacher I had. I even wrote a small astronomy website that my teacher used for several years after. I put my interest in astronomy aside as I became heavily involved in computers and data networking. Years later, I rekindled my interest in astronomy and started my venture into amateur astronomy in July of 2014 when I was looking to buy my first telescope. I reached out to a local astronomy club and the rest is history. I hope you enjoy this site. Feel free to contact me with questions or comments.
