I'm an occasional contributor to Wikipedia. I enjoy:

  • disseminating the latest astronomical research to the relevant Wikipedia pages.
  • promoting open-source as the most efficient mechanism for scientific advancement.

Pages I've created:

  • Abell 2142, a large galaxy cluster in Corona Borealis
  • NGC 7424, a Milky Way-like galaxy in Grus
  • NGC 6118, a Milky Way-like galaxy in Serpens

Pages I've made a significant contribution to:

  • Leo II, a dwarf satellite galaxy of the Milky Way
  • NGC 1350, a beautiful ring galaxy in Fornax
  • NGC 2608, an Arp galaxy in Cancer (need photo)
  • NGC 1309, a spiral galaxy in Eridanus; member of that Group
  • Local Supercluster, our large-scale neighborhood (ongoing)
  • NGC 1300, a striking barred spiral (ongoing)
