Who we are? Hmmm... This
part of our website is empty from the beginning! It looks like
none of us is capable of writing a few meaningful lines about
ourselves. It`s weird, because we seem to be so inspired when
it comes to other subjects.
of all, we are actually nothing! We are not some kind of registered
astronomical society, or anything like that.
We are just a little group of active amateur
astronomers who enjoy doing everything related to astronomy! We enjoy reading
about astronomy, writing about astronomy, observing and also showing beauties
of the sky to others. We are actually those computer geeks from bad American
movies, only without the thick glasses and (for the most of us) colonies of
began long time ago, in 1996, when Mario smuggled our first telescope,
from England. He spent some time
observing the planets, the Moon
and bright Messier objects from his skyscraper balcony. Of course, the passion
astronomy would have never grown, if Mislav didn't join him very soon. Few
years later, with help of their new telescope "Berta" they participated
on a national
astronomy contest, and they made a "significant success". Attracted
to the fame of their friends, Nikola, Damir and Leon also joined them. By
they were proficient in astronomy too.
Today, in our first years
of maturity, we don't give up for a second. In Phobos we "terrorize"
our dear fellow
citizens of Zagreb with star parties,
to make the magnificent world of astronomy closer to them. Apart from that,
organize our private observations, with a special help from a new generation
of telescopes. More about our activities and equipement can be read in
activities and equipement.
