History of Astronomy

A site devoted to information about historical figures in astronomy that could not be found else where on the internet.

If you have found your self in the position of searching the web to find some information or a photo of an historical figure in astronomy and was unsuccessful, and you may have had to do your own research. I would be very interested in using what ever material that wish to send me for use on the site. This will then help others in the future, and avoid duplicating another persons research.

If you have information that I may use on this site, please contact

Thank you.
