Hi! from Zimbabwe.
Posted by Anele Ncube on Tuesday, September 03, 2013 9:18 AM


I'm happy to be a part of this community because I have always been fascinated by the Universe and by the many creative methods people have used so as to conquer it. I am eighteen and live in Zimbabwe. My dream is to study Astronomy next year in the USA.

I hope to become your friend in this forum. Thank you for your time.

Welcome to the Astronomy.com forums, Anele.  You may find some of the information on astronomy and amateur astronomy presented in my post at cs.astronomy.com/.../49111.asp interesting.

Welcome aboard Anele. I have found that over the 40 years I have been pursuing this love, that Astronomy magazine and recently Astronomy.com has proven to be a useful tool for chasing my astronomy passion. Happy trails and dark skies to you.

  If you get the opportunity to study in the US you will lose the luck of living under southern skies in a country with very little pollution. The ideal would be to study where the fine skies are.
