His Head in the Skies

For the past year I’ve had the privilege of knowing a guy that spends most of his time working with the stars. His name is Ryan Hannahoe, researcher, teacher and astronomer. Ryan spends most of his time processing data acquired by half a dozen telescopes that he runs remotely, capturing images of far away places that most of us have never even heard of. Like this one above, one he just published a few days ago after spending 60hrs processing it. It’s really freaking cool what he does and puts a whole nother meaning on star trail photography. When he’s not behind the computer gathering information on constellations, galaxies and nebulas; he spends his time working with kids giving lectures and talks on what it is to be an astronomer, the challenges he has faced, and best of all why we should keep dreaming for the stars. He has some pretty cool stuff so check out his site.
