About the Author

A dedication to observing  and luring the faintest dim fuzzies from the sky into her eyepiece  is what makes Becky Ramotowski tick. Her interest in astronomy began at an early age when her parents used to roust her and two younger sisters out of warm beds to watch meteor showers, lunar eclipses, and comets. Since then, she’s never stopped looking at the sky. Recently she made history by spotting the planet Mercury during daylight without optical aid.Becky writes a weekly astronomy column for the San Antonio Express-News and has written for Night Sky magazine. She’s also into astroimaging with film and digital cameras and has had photos published in Sky & Telescope and Night Sky. She does most of her skywatching from her home in New Mexico (where she lives with five telescopes and her husband Shane) but makes an annual pilgrimage to the dark skies of the Texas Star Party.
