This organization is a scientific, non-profit group founded for the sole purpose of supporting amateur radio astronomy . SARA was organized in the early 1980's and today has about 400 members worldwide. The group consists of optical astronomers, ham radio operators, engineers, teachers and non-technical persons.

ADC for Amateur Astronomers
Lucile Miller Observatory
Special Note: The World Wide Web contains many, many sites for Astronomy, many of which may be of interest to amateur astronomers. The ADC primarily serves the professional astronomy community. However, amateurs can find many of the ADC's catalogs useful for their hobby. This page includes information on using ADC resources for amateur astronomy and links to selected external resources that may be of interest. We are not responsible for the content of the external pages. If you have suggestions for additional links, please send them to the curators at the e-mail addresses listed at the bottom of the page. We regret that we may not be able to accommodate every such request. THE ADC IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CONTENT OF EXTERNAL SITES LINKED FROM THIS PAGE. Amateur Astronomy Uses of ADC
What type of stuff can I find here?
The Astronomical Data Center specializes in archiving and distributing collections of data that have been published by professional astronomers. Most of these data sets are in the form of computer-readable tables of numbers, rather than images. Amateur astronomers can find these data collections useful in looking up the properties and locations of celestial objects. This can help amateurs plan for observing sessions, and help them to better understand what they've observed. Please see our

We stop people on sidewalks and let them see the craters of the Moon, the moons of Jupiter, the rings of Saturn, or the spots on the Sun. For just a moment, they have a personal connection with the universe around them, and sometimes life seems a little better after that.

8. Gary & Jake - Sidewalk Astronomy For The People Of Mill Valley
A site dedicated to sidewalk astronomy from downtown Mill Valley, California.
Committing Random Acts of Astronomy Since 2001
Gary and Jake plan to be out on Friday, October 4th.

Observation Logs

New Server

Monday, Jun 11th, 2001 - Jake has put together a new server for the website (he might have less computer junk than Gary, but his junk is cooler). We hope that this will make your experience here even better with faster response time and quicker downloads. Give it a try!
We're Famous!
Sunday, Jun 10th, 2001 - Mill Valley 94941 . Skip on over there and check it out, then come visit us on the sidewalk to see what it's all about!
Network Outage and Site Upgrade
Friday, May 25th, 2001 - A DSL network outage has kept the site down for most of the day. Of all the days for this to happen, Friday is the worst! Gary made the best of the situation by redesigning portions of the site and upgrading some hardware on the server. A new video card and tiny monitor will let him monitor the site more easily. We hope to continue improving the site whenever we can! Gary and Jake Website Launches! Friday, May 18th, 2001 - Gary and Jake proudly announce the launch of their new website, dedicated to Mill Valley sidewalk astronomy. We welcome the public to join us in observing the skies from downtown MV!

Significant Points
  • A doctoral degree is the usual educational requirement because most jobs are in basic research and development; a bachelor's or master's degree is sufficient for some jobs in applied research and development. Because funding for research grows slowly, new Ph.D. graduates will face competition for basic research jobs.

Nature of the Work About this section Back to Top Physicists explore and identify basic principles governing the structure and behavior of matter, the generation and transfer of energy, and the interaction of matter and energy. Some physicists use these principles in theoretical areas, such as the nature of time and the origin of the universe; others apply their physics knowledge to practical areas, such as the development of advanced materials, electronic and optical devices, and medical equipment. Physicists design and perform experiments with lasers, cyclotrons, telescopes, mass spectrometers, and other equipment. Based on observations and analysis, they attempt to discover and explain laws describing the forces of nature, such as gravity, electromagnetism, and nuclear interactions. Physicists also find ways to apply physical laws and theories to problems in nuclear energy, electronics, optics, materials, communications, aerospace technology, navigation equipment, and medical instrumentation.

After about five years of having this page up, I have abrogated my association with the San Francisco Sidewalk Astronomersmainly because I don't physically go out to the sidewalk anymore with my telescope(s)... However, in this virtual world, I still encourage others to do so. This page is also a space that facilitates my "telescope loan program": I loan out my personal scopes (no chargeno obligationno club to join) so others may see the universe through a telescope too... But I don't care anymore whether you share the Universe with others or not. This page will continue to have some "sidewalk-like" articles beneath its cover, but it will also be geared to the average astro-interested beginner.

    • Some studies show: the effects of not sleeping in total darkness can degrade the immune system of animals and humans. See articles gathered by Dark Skies Northwest.
      Poor lighting and wasted energy is misuse of electricity and money.
      Misdirected light, 'Light Trespass' is a nuisance and architecturally unappealing.
      Studies show that various uses of lighting may actually increase crime, just exactly the opposite of what people try to achieve.
      The light pollution from inferior lighting design on highways creates a hazard to driving known as 'Road Glare.'
