(Last updated 2014-08-23.)

I am mostly interested in making scientifically important observations, like timing occultations of or by Solar System bodies and measuring variable stars.

I am also interested in citizen science projects and participate in some of them, like Galaxy Zoo.

I have been an amateur astronomer since 1975 and have worked at the European Space agency's (ESA) technical centre in Holland, ESTEC, on the ARISTOTELES mission, an earth gravity mapping mission.

Approximate coordinates: 55°20 N, 10°20 E

comment Falling into Saturn or Jupiter, would we pass through it until we hit the nucleus?
@Andrew: I think he talks about having a headache and thus not being able to enjoy to go to heaven - in the first or second episode of the original radio series.
